Replace Alumni Field

The University Board of Trus- 
tees has voted to name the 
school's new $1.4 million, 24,000- 
seat football stadium "Universi- 
ty of Massachusetts Alumni Sta- 
dium," UMass President John 
W. Lederle announced. 

The future home of the Uni- 
versity's Fighting Redmen, the 
stadium is the first to be built 
of reinforced concrete in New 
England since 1920. Others were 
built at Harvard in 1903, at Yale 
in 1914 and at Brown in 1920. 

Architect Gordon Bunschaft of 
Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill 
planned the 'itucture. The H. P. 
Madore Co., Inc., of Southbridge 
is building the stadium. Paul 
Weidlinger is chief engineer of 
the project. Gordon Ains worth is 
in charge of landscaping and 
site development. 

The new stadium, built by the 
University Building Authority at 
no cost to Bay State taxpayers, 
has been planned as part of an 
integrated complex in the south- 

west area of the University's Am- 
herst campus. 

Practice fields, athletic fields 
for residents of the new South- 
west Residence Complex, and 
parking lots for spectators will 
all be adjacent to the new faci- 

The stadium seats are made of 
cypress. The actual playing sur- 
face of sod is being laid down on 
four inches of loam and a 10-inch 
sand base. 

The Redmen, Yankee Confer- 
ence champions for the past two 
years, will open their home sea- 
son in the new stadium on Sat- 
urday, Sept. 25, against Ameri- 
can International College. The 
facilility will also be used for 
lacrosse games in tho spring, 
and for special events .such as 

Dedication ceremonies are 
planned for Oct. lo, Homecom- 
ing Weekend, when the Redmen 
will play the University of Rhode 

University Welcomes 
180 Swing-Shift Frosh 

by Ellen Levine 

The Student Union Store is 
sold out of UMass sweatshirts. 
The House of Walsh is re-order- 
ing a supply of white levls and 
upperclassmen are congregating 
in dorm centers. The "swing 
shift" freshmen have arrived. 

These recent high school 
graduates are taking part in a 
novel program initiated by the 
University last year to meet the 
increasing number of students 
who were qualified for admis- 

On May 5, 1964, 530 candi- 
dates for admission on the wait- 
ing list were offered the oppor- 
tunity to become members of 
the Class of 1968. The 180 stu- 
dents who accepted this unique 
offer attended both sessions of 
the summer school, taking 
courses that approximated one- 
half of the freshman year. 

Rather than continuing their 
studies into the fall semester, 
these "swing shifters" returned 
to their home towns after the 
twelv« weeks of summer school 
and a new jfroup of members of 

the Class of 1968 entered the 

With the beginning of the 
spring semester, the "swing 
Shift" freshmen returned to 
campus and resumed their 
studies, rejoining their class- 
mates as full-fledged freshmen 
and taking the place of students 
who withdrew or were dropped 
from the University. 

Called by The Insider's News- 
letter "an attempt to squeeze 
in scholars," the "swing shift" 
results confirmed President 
Lederle's contention that many 
qualified students had been 
turned away. 

Sixteen of the 180 special 
freshmen made the honors list 
witn averages of 3.0 and better. 
Another 31 students had aver- 
ages of above 2.5. The overall 
cumulative average was 2.3. Of 
the 180 students, only 21 were 
placed on scholastic probation 
and only two were dismissed. 

With the success of the first 
group of "swing shift" fresh- 
men, plans were begun to ex-

Arts Festival Debuts Tuesday 
With Lecture By John Ward 


by Dave Oitelson 

"Is the University the weak- 
est or strongest link in our cul- 
ture today?" "Does the univer- 
sity have an obligation to influ- 
ence the patterns of mi)rality in 

These are but two of the press- 
ing questions that will be dis- 
cussed by historian John W. 
Ward in the opening lecture of 
the University fine arts festival, 
entitled "The University— Mir- 
ror or Lamp?" on Tuesday eve- 
ning at 7:30 p.m. in the Student 
Union ballroom. Admission is 
free and the public is cordially 

examine the universities' reac- 
tions to the challenges of con- 
temporary culture and the con- 
tributions to that culture made 
by the schools. 

The author of numerous pub- 
lications, Ward has been intim- 
ately involved with the study of 
American civilization and cul- 
ture through most of his pro- 
fessional career. In 1964 he 
served as chairman of the Pro- 
gram in American Civilization 
at Princeton University. He is 
currently professor of history at 
Amherst college. 

The lecture series is but one 
part of this summer's fine arts 
festival, "America and the 
Arts." Also to be featured in the 
twelve week program are exhi- 
bitions of watercolors, oils, 
sculpture, ceramics and batiks. 

University Theatre repertory 
presentations, a film series, a 
concert series by the Lenox 
Quartet and a program of spe- 
cial events. 

Other speakers who will take 
part in this year's series include

son, will present The Fantas- 
ticks, by Tom Jones and Harvey 
Schmidt, Moliere's The Inugln-

by Richard Nash. 

Included among the thirteen 
films to be shown are Huckle- 
lierry Finn, The Grapes of 
Wrath,. Tea and Sympathy, 
Psycho, Shane, Staglag 17 and 
To Kill a Mockingbird. They 

have been selected to present a 
broad cross-section of recent 
cultural trends within the movie 

In addition, producer Richard 
Hilliard will speak this Friday 
evening about the American art 
film. His new production, The 
Playground, will also be given a 
pre-release showing at that 

sculptors John Walker and 
Leonard DeLonga, and Brenda 
Minisci and Arlene Nilsson, who •. 
work in ceramics and batiks, re- c-^^

works here this summer. >■ 

Among the special events 
scheduled during the festival 
are appearances by The Voy- 
ages, traditional folk singers, 
the Burke Family Singers and 
Chuck Speas and his jazz sep- 

The purpose of the festival is 
to st^-engthen the appreciation 
of American culture through 
the fine arts. Its sponsors, the 
University summer program of- 
fice, the art department and the 
University Theatre encourage 
students and the public to at- 
tend as many of the 46 pro- 
grams as possible, as the sever- 
al events taken together pre- 
sent a unity of experience. For 
this reason they are offering 
season's tickets at a greatly re- 
duced price, which may be pur- 
chased during the week in the 
RSO office. 

Lederle Names Master of 
Southwest Residence Area 

Dr. Clarence Shute, head of 
the philosophy department at 
UMass, has been named Master 
of the University's Southwest 
Residence area, President John 
W. Lederle announced. 

As Master, Dr. Shute will im- 
plement the "residential college" 
concept in the new living faci- 

Four of the ultra-modern dor- 
mitories will be ready for oc- 
cupancy this fall. By Sept. 1966, 
two 22-story dormitories will 
be completed, rounding out the 
first residential college unit for 
the 1900 students that Dr. Shute 

w'll head. Eventually the resi- 
dence area will have housing and 
dining facilities for 5,300 UMass 

Dr. Shute will supervise and 
work with an associate master, 
preceptors, residents, and fellows 
— all faculty members. 

He and his staff will attempt 
to bring students and faculty 
closer together through formal 
and informal cultural and educa- 
tional activities. 

The residential college plan in 
the Southwest area continues a 
program initiated this year by 
the University in the four Or- 

chard Hill dormitories. 

The Danforth Foundation last 
year grpnted $7500 to the Uni- 
versity for financial support of 
the program at Orchard Hill. 

Because of the enthusiasm and 
encouragement of faculty mem- 
bers participating in the Or- 
chard Hill experimental program, 
the University decided to carry 
on the program in the Southwest 

Programs in the new resi- 
dences will follow the general 
pattern established this year in 
the Orchard Hill dormitories, but

^OU ^OKt SiUf*.. 

Well, you're here. UMass— 
college. Finally. Last week at 
this time many of you were 
still entombed in your high- 
school classrooms; five or six 
periods a day, live days a week. 
That's fini now. The transition 
will prove harrowing to some, 
easy to others, but all in all last 
year's figures indicate that 
most oif you will meet the chal- 
lenge successfully. 

Observation leads me to be- 
lieve that there aro those 
among you who consider the 
first week a game, an extension 
of senior week. Watch out that 
the 'one big party' idea doesn't 
pervade all that you do. Grant- 
ed that the summer is neces- 
sarily relaxed, but academics 
should remain as the nexus for 
your attendance. I'm not one to 
advocate the bookworm image, 
but grades will determine the 
length and success of a Univer- 
sity career, and studies must re- 
main paramount to all else. In- 
dividual variation is great, so 
one must remain within his cap- 

Allow me to note that I am 
not to trying to sound like a 
father, but speak from three 
years of experience at the Uni- 
versity. Doubtless, you left 
home amid myriad words of 
wisdom, bits of advice, and ad- 
monitions — Study hard, change 
your linen, don't catch cold, 
watch out for wild women or 
scheming fraternity men. You 
can forget most of what your 
friends said, as there are no ab- 
solutes. Nothing is "great" or 
horrendous," "a gut" or "wick- 
ed," it all varies with the indi- 

by Dan Glosband 

Perhaps a word of personal 
introduction would lend some 
weight to my words before I 
continue. I am a senior, Editor- 
in-Chief of the Collegian during 
the regular year, a former fra- 
ternity member, Literary editor 
of Yahoo, a member of my class 
executive council, and an Adel- 
phian. I'm quite familiar with 
the University, and am not 
speaking entirely off the top of 
my head. 

I guess I'll stop playing the 
foreboding oracle for a while, 
and mention a bit about this 
column. Hopefully it will ap- 
pear weekly during the summer, 
but I'm given to spasmodic in- 
spiration and may not be that 
consistent. The column will re- 
main open to cover anything 
and everything that strikes me 
as interesting, entertaining, im- 
portant, or for any other ob- 
scure reason. I'll graciously ac- 
cept criticism, and wield it my- 
self, but perhaps not so gra- 
ciously — time will tell. 

Back now to the forming em- 
bryo that is the class of '69. I 
have thus far noted a standard 
but changing image of the 
freshman male. No doubt it will 
follow the typical before and 
after pattern. The 'before' sits 
in the hatch ogling, but not any- 
thing particular. He appears 
young, but tries to convey a 
mixture of the savoir-faire, bon- 
vivant, aspiring intellectual that 
he imagines himself to be. He Is 
garbed conservatively in black, 
tie shoes, white cotton socks, 
black peg pants, an indescriba- 
ble print shirt, and has a lock 
of well trained hair curling de- 
llnquently upon his forehead. 

School of Education 
To Present Lectures 

The University School of Edu- 
cation and the Cooperative 
School Service Center at UMass 
will bring four distinguished

president will speak on "Lost 
Horizons in Education" 

Dr. Rosenfield, a charter mem- 
ber of the National Organization 
on Legal Problems of Education, 
will speak on Monday, June 28. 
His topic: "Education Shibbo- 
leths—Their Legal Implications."

the President's White House 
Conference for the Southeastern 
Region, will lecture on "Educa- 
tion's Frontiers — A Challenge 
and a Promise" on Wednesday,

The summer lecture series will 
conclude on Tuesday, July 20, 
with an address by Commission- 
er Logan, who is a former su- 
perintendent of Burlington, Vt.. 
public schools and a trustee of 
the New SchoM for Retarded 
Children. Logan will speak on 
"Strengthening the Leadership 
Role in Education at the State 

All lectures will be held in the 
School of Education Auditorium.

Dirty Sweatshirt Puts 
Iowa Freshman In Jail 

(An extreme case perhaps, but 
I'm sure it hit home at least 
partially in many cases— no of- 
fense meant). 

Given a few weeks, he will 
begin to assimilate the charac- 
teristics of the 'after'. White Le- 
vis or Madras shorts, sockless 
or with colored Adlers, an ox- 
ford shirt (either blue, yellow 
or pinstriped) or a madras 
shirt, hair casually falling up- 
on his forehead, feet in com- 
fortable Weejuns, he will sit in 
the Hatch, still ogling. 

As for the distaff side of the 
freshman class, enough said 
about the males, they can make 
their own assumptions. 

I suppose I had best close for 
this week before I alienate any 
more of our striving, young 
frosh. Consider yourselves lucky 
that you aren't wearing a bean- 
ie. I had to. 

Next week, I won't limit my- 
self to anything in particular. 
If you feel so inclined, you can 
contact me by mail or pony ex- 
press at the Student Union. I 
will gladly entertain all ideas or 
comments, but beware, you may 
receive a reply in print. Don't 
forget that the Arts Festival 
starts this week, and I'll be 
back, for better or for worse, 
next week. 

An exhortation to commit the 
act of fornication against an 
alien ideology printed on a Uni- 
versity of Chicago student's 
sweatshirt has brought him a 
charge of disorderly conduct. 

Alan Ruby, 19. a freshman 
from Ottawa, Iowa, was arrested 
while playing tennis in back of 
his dormitory. Part of his tennis 
attire consisted of a sweatshirt 
emblazoned with two words, one 
of them a four letter word, the 
other the word 'Conununism.' 

About 8:45 one evening, two 
city patrolmen caught a glimpse 
of the questionable slogan. Ruby 
was told to get into a waiting 

patrol car and was taken to a 
Chicago police station, where he 
spent an hour in a cell and final- 
ly posted $25 bail bond. Ruby 
said he was denied the opportu- 
nity to make any phone calls. 

If Ruby Is found guilty of dis- 
orderly conduct, he is liable for 
a maximum fine of $200. There 
is no jail penalty provided. 

According to Ruby, when the 
offended patrolman was ques- 
tioning him, he was aslted, 
"Would you show that to your 
mother or sister?" 

Replied Ruby: "I don't have a 
sister, but my mother's already 
seen the identical sign."

For the first time at UMass, 
faculty couples will also par-

program — wives as heads of resi-

Seven eminent Americans were 
presented with honorary degrees 
from UMass at commencement 
exercises marking the close of 
the school's 102nd year. 

Richard Cardinal Cushing was 
presented with the degree of 
Doctor of Humane Letters. The 
Cardinal was cited for bringing, 
"in the fullest measure possible, 
the good tidings of boundless 
charity, extraordinary compas- 
sion, and enormous g'>od-will to 
all men. 

"Your immense faith," the ci- 
tation continued, "has been ex- 
emplary to this nation, in time 
of war as in time of peace, in 
time of rejoicing as in time of 

"In all seasons, yours is the 
eloquent soul whose accents of 
humble praise bring men of all 
persuasions to see ever more 
clearly that understanding is the 
great and enduring instrument 
for attaining world - wide jus- 
tice and peace." 

Author William Manchester, a 
University alumnus who deliver- 
ed the commencement address, 
also received the honorary Doc- 
tor of Humane Letters degree. 

"Your penetration of the en- 
vironments of politics, econom- 
ics, history and literature," the 
citation said of Manchester, "re- 
fractory as these may often be, 
is evidence of the c6mprehen- 
sive and yet incisive intelligence 
which you bring to your craft. 

"In all of your work, as biog- 
rapher and novelist, as historian 
and commentator, you have kept 
your focus uncompromisingly 

upon people. And through this 
process, you have spoken clear 
and compelling truths not only 
about America, but also about 
the emerging destiny of other 
cultures and other lands." 

Former Massachusetts Gov. 
Endicott Peabody was presented 
with an honorary Doctor of 
Laws degree.

The number rose even higher as 
296 students began their col-

The unique program presents 
unique problems for the fresh- 
men. They are denied the sum- 
mer vacation anticipated by 
most students and are faced

to "Gee, I got refused at seven

Milt Morin Gets Nod As Top '66 Pro Pick 

UMass Tight End 
Cited By Scouts 

Photo by Lawrence 

Milt Morln (82) leaps over defense In pass-catching try- 

Milt Morin, a tight end at 
the University of Massachusetts, 
is rated by many professional 
football scouts as the 1965 col- 
lege senior most likely to succeed 
as a 1966 rookie star in pro foot- 

He received a double-A rating 
as an excellent pro prospect by 

the scouts looking for talent for 
the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia 
Eagles, Detroit Lions and Pitts- 
burgh Steelers. Though he played 
for a small college, Morin is well 
known by National and Ameri- 
can Football League scouts. Un- 
doubtedly he has a double-A rat- 
ting with all teams. 

Choose from a large collection of 


and a fine selection of 





Nine scouts cover the country 
for the Bears Eagles, Lions and 
Steelers under the new plan by 
which groups of National Foot- 
ball League teams pool scouting 

These birds dogs met in Pitts- 
burgh for two days recently to 
go over spring reports on 1%5 
seniors who will be available for 
the N.F.L. draft next winter. 
Nine to be Watched Closely 
After studying reports of the 
players' action over the last two 
seasons in college and their 
showing in this year's spring 
pracice sessions the scouts classi- 
fied the prospects. The nine 
scouts listed the players they will 
watch closely during the coming 
college campaign. Each scout has 
a territory to cover. . 

Gene Cronin is the scout who 
covers New England for the nine- 
man group known as BELSTRO 
(Bears, Eagles, Lions, Steelers 
Talent Organization). Thus, 
Cronin wil keep up with Morin's 
activities and report prior to the 
N.F.L. draft meeting. 

BELSTRO named Morin and 
. eight other players as the best 
of the good professional pro- 
spects eligible for draft this win- 
ter. Though there are many more 
good players around, the nine 
college seniors named are the 
athletes everyone knows about 
and everyone wants. Chances are 
each will be selected on the first 
or second draft round by each 
pro league. 

The players, in addition to 
Morin, are Tom Nobis, Texas 
linebacker; Carl Mc Adams, Okla- 
homa linebacker; Rick Norton, 
Kentucky quarterback; Gary 
Snook, Iowa quarterback; John 
Niland, Iowa guard; Jim Gra- 
bowski, Illinois fullback; Rodger 
Bird, Kentucky running back, 
and Howard Twilley, Tulsa split 
end and pass receiver. 

Two Rated a* Equal 
Nobis is a double-A man rated 
on a par with Morin. The scouts 
did not indicate the ratings of 
the other seven but obviously 
they are high. 

Morin was the favorite topic 
of the group. Maybe it was be- 
cause the meeting was held in

Big number 82 grinds post opposing linemen. 

Pittsburgh, where Morin is being 
compared by the Steelers to Mike 
Ditka, the University of Pitts- 
burgh end who turned pro with 
the Bears. 

Vic Fusia, the coach of the 
Massachusetts team, was former- 
ly a member of the University 
of Pittsburgh coaching staff. He 
has reported to his frinds in 
Pittsburgh that Morin "is better 
at this stage than Ditka was." 

Morin is 6 feet 5 inches and 
weights 225 pounds. He was a 
leader of the Massachusetts team 
that won the Yankee Conference 
title in 1964 and then played in 
the Tangerine Bowl. 

It is possible that the 1965 
Heisman Trophy winner will be 
one of the nine players men- 

tioned by BELSTRO. Since backs 
are usually named the winner of 
this award, which goes to the 
nation's outstanding college foot- 
ball player, it might be worth 
keeping an eye on Grabowski, 
Bird, Norton and Snook. 

However, Nobis will start the 
season as highly rated as any 
player in the land. If he and 
Texas produce a fine record, he 
has a good chance for the award. 
Morin, though apparently as 
capable as any player in the 
country, has a strike against him 
in the Heisman vote. He comes 
from what is rated a small col- 
lege despite the fact that Massa- 
chusetts is a fast-growing power 
in New England athletics.

Solons Veto Proposal To Push For Med Site Change 

Springfield Union, June tS, 1965 
BOSTON — Against custom 
and against possible retribution 
by the Democratic leadership, 
92 House members Tuesday vot- 
ed for resolutions calling on the 
University of Massachusetts 
trustees to reconsider the vote 
of 12-10 which would put the 
medical school In Worcester. 
128 Favor Choice 
But a stamp of approval of 
sorts went to Worcester In the 
123 loyal friends of House 
Speaker John F. X. Davorsn, 
D-Mllford, who voted against 
discharging the resolutions 
from the Rules Committee. It 
Is considered bad leglsatlve 
form to vote to discharge legis- 
lation from the powerful Rules 

Only one Western Massachu- 
setts legislator, Rep. Anthony 
M. Scibelli, D-Springfield, who 
was named Ways and Means 
chairman by Davoren, voted 
against discharging the resolu- 
tions. Every other Western 
Massachusetts legislator voted 
in favor of having the trustees 

Davoren was charged with 
threats to withhold funds from 
the medical school If It were 
placed In Amherst as recom- 
mended in a $30,000 study by 
the management consultant 
firm of Booz, Allen and Hamil- 
ton. The action was on the res- 
olutions for trustee reconsidera- 
tion filed early last week by for- 
mer House ^ Speaker John F. 
Thompson, D-Ludlow. Thomp- 
son objected the trustee ballot 
was secret so no one knew how 
each voted. He said millions 
could be saved by use of the UM 
campus site. 

Charges Pressure 

Rep. James R. Nolen, D-Ware, 
said reconsideration by the trus- 
tees was indicated so higher ed- 
ucation will regain confidence 
of people across the state. He 
charged the Amherst site selec- 
tion had been beaten down by 
political pressure exerted by 
Speaker Davoren 24 hours be- 
fore the trustees met and that 
It would require a whole new 
university site in Worcester for 
graduate students. 

Rep. Walter T. Kostanski, R- 

Montague, supported the - 
Thomp&on resolutions, pointing 
out that the first choice of the 
consultants had been Amherst, 
second Springfield and third sub- 
urban Boston, but the trustees 
"took a twist." 

Majority Leader Robert H. 
Quinn, D-Boston, said the trus- 
tee action was non-political. He 
said Thompson and Nolen 
come from the "golden west," 
but the legislature had insisted 
the medical school should be 
above politics. He said he, per- 
sonally, felt it should be in Bos- 
ton and every legislator probab- 
ly feels it belongs in his own

Worcester legislators jvmiped 
Into the debate with vigor. Rep. 
Thomas F. Farrell, D-Worcester, 
hailed the city as an ideal site 
with five great hospitals and

Ward Cites Double Aspect 
Of Educational Institutions 

By Dan Oloshcmd 
Speaking before a crowd of 
over 100 in the Student Union 
Ballroom John W. Ward braved 
the ninety-degree heat to tell the 
audience, "One of the jobs of 
education is to teach us to think. 
All educational institutions 
must face this demand." 

In his speech, "University, Mir- 
ror or Lamp", Ward developed 
the theme of whether the uni- 

versity as mirror was to reflect 
the values of society, or as lamp 
was to act as a guiding light to 
penetrate the darkness of our 
confusion. The dichotemy 
broadens into a question of 
whether the main function of 
the university is in teaching 
(mirror) or research (lamp). 

"Today, there is a demand on 
those who teach in a university 
to advance scholarship, and to

make original contributions to 
knowledge," said the Amherst 
College historian. 

Here we note a drawing to- 
gether of the concepts of mirror 
and lamp. Education becomes in 
one sense a socializing agent. 

"Education initiates the young 
into society," according to Ward, 
"It becomes one of the ways in 
which a society transmits itself 
across generations." 

In this role, "Faculty becomes 
a clericy of tramsmission." Yet, 
they are driven towards heresy, 
to seek the tensions and contra- 
dictions in the tradition that 
they are transmitting. 

"Tradition becomes an elastic 
measuring rod, and the intellec- 
tual plunges deeply into the 
battles of his times," continued 

The youthful historian re- 
ferred to the Chicago Worlds 
Fair of 1893 to illustrate his con- 
tentions with two opposing 
theories of history. Frederick 
Jackson Turner presented a 
paper on the frontier at the Ex- 
position characterizing Ameri- 
can development as an escape 
from the decadency of Europe 
to the benefesence of unfallen 
nature. Nathaniel Shaler, in a 
three volume work contempor- 
ary to Taylor, characterized 
development, by the achieve- 
ments of Americans towards a 
higher form of civilization 
united by viewpoint. 

"Americans have seen their 
progress both ways," according 
to Ward. These two theories 
manifest the difference between 
mirror and lamp, and Just as 
they may be seen both ways, so 
may the mirror and lamp be 

Thus the intellectual may pass 
judgement on the past, and at

Senior Advice To Freshmen: 
Remember Extra- Curricula 

Edit<»^8 note.TMs is the first in a 9eriea of five speciai editorials written to freatman from ffrad- 
witing seni(»-8. The authm-a all ffraduated with hiflh cumulative averages and were engaged in a 
variety of extra^curricuiar activities. To use the vernacular, "they know their stuff," and their words 
are not to be taken lightly. 

publications you may wish to is a not-so-trlte adage that says, 

By Norman Trump 
Everyone has heard the ex- 
pression, "don't be a Joiner." As 
a freshman in the University, 
you'll shortchange yourself 11 
you don't join one or several of 
the many organizations set up 
for students. This isn't Just 
good advice — if you join an 
organization and stick to it, you 
will find it's the best advice. 

The University Catalog says, 
"Such activities can be a profi- 
table means of fostering matur- 
ity and general enrichment in 
those students who wish to take 
optimum advantage of all that 
the University can offer." This 
isn't just an empty platitude. It 
is truth. 

You'll find that the University 
community is a big switch from 
high school, where there probab- 
ly weren't more than 1,500 peo- 
ple enrolled. Here the accent 
seems to be exclusively on size. 
The dormitories are big, intro- 
ductory courses often seem to 
fit half the Freshman Class into 
one auditorium and everywhere 
there are students and more 
students. One complaint, often 
unnecessary, that incoming stu- 
dents (and even upperclassmen) 
make is that they are just a 
number, a iace in the crowd. 
Things should and can be dif- 
ferent, for while you can't 
change the size or number of 
the student body, you can inte- 
grate yourself effectively into a 
smaller segment of it. 

If you like to play a musical 
instrument, join one of the 
bands. If v^nrltlng is your inter- 
est, there are several campus 

serve. If you have a bent for 
psychology, join the psychology 
club. If you are interested in 
radio, you will be welcome to 
Join the student-operated FM 
station. When fraternities and 
sororities hold "round robins," 
you might find that one of them 
is Just what you've been look- 
ing for. Here, more than any- 
where else, you'll find a place 
that you can make your college 
life revolve around. 

One thing the Catalog doesn't 
mention is the enormous pres- 
sure you'll be under. More tests, 
more homework, more terra pa- 
pers — everything builds up un- 
til many times you'll feel you 
cannot continue. You will be at 
a double disadvantage if you 
merely commute between 
classes, the library and your 
room. With no way to work off 
steam by forgetting your class- 
room troubles for a while, odds 
are high that you won't make 
It through freshman year. 

In a club, fraternity or sport, 
you can set aside the academic 
portion of the school and have 
fun. You can do what you want 
and not worry about grades or 

You might begin asking your- 
self, "What do I do when 
classes are over? What do I do 
on weekends?" Without some 
activity, you've got next to 
nothing. Not everyone Is happy 
reading books all of his spare 
time, and even If he Is, there 

"All things in moderation.' 

Everyone likes to feel that 
what he does has some pur« 
pose, and that there is some re- 
ward lor work. In retrospect 
the college years are short, but 
to a freshman they extend far 
Into the future. The diploma, 
that reward lor passing scores 
ol courses successlully, is lar 
away. However, when you see 
your name at the head of an 
article in the school newspaper 
the day after you write it, you 
will know Immediately that the 
work involved was worthwhile. 
If you help pass a bill In the 
student senate, you don't have 
to wait years to see the result. 
Such satisfactions can be gained 
li'om any organization you join. 

You owe it to yoursell to 
make your stay here worth- 
while and to "go extracurrl"! 
la." You'll not only have moro 
fun here, but In the best sense 
of the term, you'll be "taking 
optimum advantage of all that 
the University can oiler."

New Hazards 
Created By 
Skate Craze 

Sidewalk suring — the new craze 
sweeping the nation — is creat- 
ing a serious hazard which 
could bring injury or death. 

California law enforcement au- 
thorities, meeting in San Mateo, 
agreed the skate-boards have 
caused numerous injuries to 
motorists swerving to avoid 
youngsters scooting from be- 
tween parked cars or from 
around corners. 

And since there is no method 
of stopping the wheeled boards, 
other than a collision or jump- 
ing off, hundreds of youngsters 
have been seriously injured 
bringing themselves to a halt. 
— Springfield Union 

The serious hazards of skate- 
boarding are also in evidence 
at UMass as many sidewalk 
surfers brave the pavements 
of the Orchard Complex and 
other Amherst hills.

Uganda School Dedication 

UMass representatives partici- 
pated with U. S. State De- 
partment officials and Ugandan 
government officials last Sat- 
urday in dedication ceremonies 
for the 420-student Tororo Girls 
school in Uganda, Africa. 

University President John W. 
Lederle, Mrs. Lederle and Dean 
Albert W. Purvis of the UMass 
School of Education all took 
part in the dedication. 

Albert Slaughter, acting direc- 
tor of the Agency for Interna- 
tional Development (AID) mis- 
sion in Uganda, and Uganda's 
minister of education, Dr. Jo- 
shua Zake (Zah-key) also 
participated in the ceremonies. 

The new Uganda secondary 

school, opened last Feb. 2, was 
constructed cooperatively by 
the UMass School of Education 
and the Uganda Ministry of Ed- 
ucation under AID auspices. 

Tororo Girls School is a six- 
year boarding institution, inter- 
racial and interdenominational, 
with program.s of college prep- 
aration, home economics, busi- 
ness and genera^ education. 

The 73 acre t-r mpus includes 
more than 20 buildings. 

Present faculty of Tororo 
Girls School is about one-half 
American, one-half Ugandan. 
American teachers will gradu- 
ally withdraw over the next few 
years, leaving the school entire- 
ly staffed by Ugandans.

Volpe, a 23d member of the UM 
trustees, was not present and 
should have been when the 11- 
11 tie vote occurred on the 
fourth ballot, before the fifth 
where the vote switched to Wor- 

"It's ridiculous to say there 
wasn't political pressure," Bart- 
ley said and called for trustee 
reconsideration to give Volpe a 
chance to be recorded and the 
trustees, too. 

Wants BoU-CaU Votes 

The Holyoke legislator an- 
nounced he will file legislation 
for action by the next session to 
require that all votes of state 
boards and commissions be by 
roll calL 

Rep. James L. Grimsddi, D- 
Springfield, stressed that $30,- 
000 had been paid for the con- 
sultants. He said the report ol 
the consultants should have 
been honored by the trustees. 

As the praise of Worcester 
rolled from its legislators, Rep. 
John P. O'Brien, D-Springfleld, 
asked how it happened that no 
one could find a place to put the 
hospital to be built with the 
medical school. Rep. Dave N. 
Vigneault, D-Springfield, said 
the vote should have been on 
the record. 

Rep. Philip K. Kimball, R- 
Springfield. who 16 years ago 
began filing legislation and the 
fight to establish a UM medical 
school, observed that the legisla- 
tive comihission had turned the 
decision over to the trustees to 
take it out of politics. Certainly, 
this should be opened to recon- 
sideration, he said, and if it is 
the best site, Worcester will 
still be chosen. 

Nearly all Western Massachu- 
setts legislators voted in favor 
of the Thompson Resolution to 
recommend a consideration of a 
change of the medical school 

Opposed to discharging the 
Rules Committee of the Meas-

Tennis Rackets 
and Balls 





By Howie Davis 

With the conclusion of the 
U.S. Open golf tournament in St. 
Louis this past weekend, one 
point stands out among all 
others: for the third year in a 
row the defending champion 
failed to make the cut at the 
half-way mark. 

Jack Nicklaus, the 1962 
champ, failed in '63; Julius 
Boros was a casualty in 1964 and 
Ken Venturi didn't make the 
grade this year. Nicklaus is a 
powerful youngster and will earn 
his share, and more, of the pro- 
fessional golf money in the next 
couple of decades. Boros, in his 
forties now, has been on the golf 
tour for nearly as many years 
as I am old. Venturi's story re- 
mains in a class by itself. 

The latter was not able to play 
a single hole, or for that matter 

UM Students 
On Vietnam 

University of Massachusetts 
students are not well informed 
about the Vietnsun situation, ac- 
cording to a random saunple 
taken recently at UMass. 

UMass graduate students, 
members of Dr. John Fen ton's 
public opinion course, conducted 
the sample sui^'ey to find out 
what students felt about current 
problems in Vietnam. 

The survey, taken in Meuxh, 
showed not only a lack of knowl- 
edge among students about what 
was going on in Southeast Asia, 
but an evident dissatisfaction 
with Administration policy. 

While 70% of those polled 
thought the United States should 
be in Vietnam, 64% favored 
negotiations and 50% feared war 
with Communist China. 

The survey also turned up the 
fact that older students were 
less aggressive and more dis- 
posed to negotiation than young- 
er ones. Men were better in- 
formed than the coeds. 

The survey also produced a 
composite picture of the student 
most likely to be relatively well- 
informed about events in Viet- 
nam. He turned out to be a mid- 
dle class, liberal Republican 
male, a Jewish social science ma- 
jor who does not attend services 

The sampling of 82 students 
showed that the firmest support- 
ers of Administration policy were 
those with the most exposure to 
news media. 

a single shot, without a twinge 
of pain in his hands. He is suf- 
fering from a circulatory ail- 
ment which struck him right 
after his Open victory in 1964. 
It is similar to the ailment which 
sidelined Sandy Koufax of the 
Los Angeles Dodgers last year. 

With this tremendous handi- 
cap Venturi was not able to 
shoot with power or putt with 
accuracy. Yet, he finished the 
first 36 holes of competition. 
This demonstrates one of two 
things: the quest for sympathy 
or the mark of a true champion. 

The question concerning the 
characteristics of a champion 
has been thrown around ad in- 
finitum. It will never be solved. 
But if anyone wanted to see a 
true champion, in every implica- 
tion of the word, he should have 
seen Ken Venturi in action last 
Thursday amd Friday. From the 
on-the-scene reports came words 
of sadness, regret, and morbid- 
nesss. A truly great champion 
had succumbed to a fate which 
was beyond a mortal person. 

After his poor showing Venturi 
said that he would hang up his 
golfbag until the ailment was 
remedied. How great a golfer 
would Ken Venturi have been? 
No one will ever know. For it is 
doubtful that he will ever be 

able to play with the same 
amount of ability even if he has 
the necessary operation. 

Now let's take into account 
the plight of the potentially 
great athlete whose career is cut 
short or hampered by lAiysical 
disabihtitc. Htw great a base- 
ball player wou.M Harry Agan- 
nis, the former Boston Univer- 
sity and Red Sox athlete, have 
been if he had not passed away 
in his prime? Would Ernie Davis 
have been the greatest fullback 
the sport of professional football 
ever employed? Would Mickey 
Mantle have broken every major 
batting record in organized base- 
ball if his legs were as sound as 
the average baseball ■ player? 

The answers to these ques- 
tions — I don't have them. I 
would like to say that these men 
were all potential greats. Surely, 
they showed their extraordinary 
ability as long as they were able. 
The answers? No one has them. 
But is it not a shame that the 
Americans public has not been 
able to viitness feats that these 
men were capable of perform-

greatness and, simultaneously,

Noting that as presiding offi- 
cer he would take no sides dur- 
ing the session. Dr. Tippo em- 
phasized before calling the 
meeting to order that he had 
actively supported Medical 
School Dean Lamar Soutter. 
Both from careful study of all 
available evidence and from 
personal experience, he favored 
the Amherst campus. 

Questioned later on whether 
there was a precedent for a 
board of trustees to change its 
vote, Dr. Tippo said he could 
name dozens of cases where 
trustees had reconsidered after 
the faculty had expressed Its 
views. One example Is the Uni- 
versity of California. San Diego, 
where the board of regents de- 
cided to locate the medical 
school 12 miles away from the 
parent campus. The faculty in- 
vestigated asked that the school 
be put on the main campus, and 
It was. 

THE PROVOST mentioned 
the University of Illinois which 
in 1953 had authorized a school 
of business administration out- 
side the operation of the gradu- 
ate school. "We felt this had 
been done on illegal grounds, 
and the trustees abolished it." 

Dr. Tippo agreed that the fac- 
ulty could have had an opportu- 
nity to express its opinions earl-

ler. "This might have been an 
error," he said, "Not of the trus- 
tees, but mine perhaps. I al- 
lowed my own feelings of assur- 
ance that the school would be 
here to sway me." 

Dean Moore emphasized that 
reconsideration Is not being re- 
quested because the faculty 
feels that anything improper 
has been done. "I think we feel 
that Worcester was never seri- 
ously debated," he said. "After 
the tie vote, It should have been 
reconsidered. It should be stud- 
led now vls-a-vls Amherst and 
Worcester and the decision 
should be made on this basis." 

MITTEES of the faculty senate 
win nominate the ad hoc mem- 
bers at a special meeting on 
Wednesday. They will present 
the senate petition to the trus- 
tees at their next meeting, 
scheduled for July 7 in Boston. 
The expectation is that it will be 
considered by trustees at that 
time and acted on at a later

Producer Richard Hilliard discusses aspects of "Tlie Playground" 
witli an interested audience. 


The Playground, . . 

by Dave Moore 

Richard Hillard, producer-di- 
rector of a new art film, "The 
Playground", encouraged Friday 
night's previewing audience to 
"consider this film as if you were 
professional distributors. If you 
had paid to see it, would you en- 
courage others to do so?" 

LEASE SHOWING in the Stu- 
dent Union Ballroom was the 
second of a variety of 1965 Sum- 
mer Fine Arts Festival programs 
being held on the University 
campus. Students and area resi- 
dents were offered the rare op- 
portunity to meet and question a 
ne'v, but obviously serious and 
talented pioneer of the art film 
medium in this country. 

"The Playground" is mos 
significant perhaps as a satire ol 
the well ordered progression ol 
life that characterizes the dra- 
matizations of today's commer- 
cial screen writers. "It is not a 
completely tied circle," said pro- 
ducer Hillard. "It is meant to 
have an open end. In this respect 
it shares with literature those 
qualities which make you think." 

Hilliard's film is a loosely con- 
nected sequence of episodes, each 
enacted to emphasize the inter- 
actions of typed characters in a 
structured society. The episodes 
themselves are left open ended. 
"We don't tell you the second 
half," admits the producer. 

OF EPISODES. There is no 
story or tightly woven plot. But 
the interconnecting threads are 
there. As in life itself, character 
relationships are tightly woven, 
though specific situations do not 
seem to be. 

Basing his screen play on the 
novel "My Brother, Death", by 
C.S. Sulzberger, the Hilliard pro- 
duction chose to satirize, or at 
least bring to task, several status 
roles of the modem social com- 
plex. This it does in commically 
light but thought-provoking con- 
texts, while skillfully relating 
the character types one with an- 

Taken as a whole, " The Play- 
ground' has the qualities of life 
itself; laughter, chaos, sadness, 

triumph, and beauty." But in a 
more artistic sense, the new 
$100,000 screen-play is tied to- 
gether throughout by the char- 
acters' "lack of acceptance of 
death." The title itself. Hilliard 
told his UMass audience critics, 
indicates that death is really life. 
"Children accept and understand 
death. If we as adults can face 
death, then we can live each day 
more purposefully." 

COMMENTS from an enthusias- 
tic audience following the 
screening of his film. He did so 
in the kind of frank and open 
manner characteristic of a seri- 
ous new professional. With re- 
gard to previous college show- 
ings, Hilliard said, "I learned a 
lot about the film. I didn't re- 
alize how funny it was." The 
stiff est critic present at the pre- 
viewing was perhaps Hilliard 
himself, who pointed out many 
scenes which were set inequate- 
ly or ambiguously. 

To a barage of questions about 
the meanings or relationships of 
characters and scenes, the pro- 
ducer's answers were usually "I 
don't know". He said that many 
of the implications he intended 
in "The Playground" were not 
realized by audiences, and vice- 
versa. "The film is like a poem 
in that you can't say what is 
meant. Either you get the feel- 
ing or you don't." 

Technically speaking, "The 
Playground" was excellently cast 
£md definitely well acted. Photo- 
graphic qualities contributed 
much to the polished nature of 
the art work. 

FIED WHOLE in the commer- 
cial movie sense. The audience 
does not get a carefully knit, 
progressively developed theme. 
In this respect it will not find 
wide appeal among ordinary 
movie goers, pre-conditioned to 
Hollywood's story-on-a-platter 
entertainment. As an intellectual 
experieni^e and satirical art form, 
however, "The Playground" is 
first-rate. It moves with a cap- 
tivating tempo from beginning to 
end. The film is comfortably 
viewed, but a challenge to 
thought and discussion. 

^jfteT a week oftoil to ad-

inhale deeply, experience my

happy if I never wrote another 
word, but to them I address my 
fondest regrets, for I h^ e ev-

its lack of size is necessary, in

more culturally altruistic hori-

Friday's Faculty Senate meet- 
ing. They had previously forbid- 
den my admittance to all such 
gatherings, but this latest meet- 
ing was open to the public due 
to its broad implications, and 
justly so. I was encouraged by 
their unanimity on an issue of 
such overwhelming importance 
to the University, and also by 
their strength of purpose. It re- 
mains to be seen if the trustees 
are as genuinely interested in 
the welfare of UMass as the fac- 
ulty is. 

One more note in my unde-

to put back on my other hat — 
that of the poor, but honest,

Med. Site Debacle 

Politics vs Education 


Politics and education — they mix as well as oil and 
water. Yet this improbable brew seems the basis for the 
decision to locate the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School in Worcester. 

Apparently the Board of Trustees placed little weight 
on the $30,000 study of Booz, Allen, and Hamilton, whose 
report strongly favored an Amherst location. The trustees 
approved 34 criteria for site selection. On the basis of these 
points, a Campus site received top point ratings in 25 cate- 
gories, while Worcester only had two categories in the up- 
per level. 

Information gathered from Deans of newly established 
medical schools emphatically favored a location on the cam- 
pus of the parent university. 

Opinion of faculty in disciplines related to medicine 
was unanimously behind the choice of Amherst as the place 
to build the new Med school. 

In light of these empirically supported statements, I 
cannot help but wonder at the obscure reasoning behind the 
Worcester decision. I say obscure because I dislike the 
thought of what seems to be blatantly obvious-politics work- 
ing to the detriment of education. 

But if not politics, what is the excuse for disregarding 
the overwhelming factual, reasoned support given to an Am- 
herst choice ? Why the fourth choice of a $30,000 expert's 
survey instead of the first? 

All answers point toward Beacon Hill and the influence 
of Rep. John F. X. Davoren, speaker of the Massachusetts 

I doubt that he is more knowing than the Supreme 
Court of the United States, which in the 1959 decision 
Barenblatt vs. United States. Mr. Justice Harlon delivering 
the opinion of the Court, said : "When academic teaching- 
freedom and its corollary learning-freedom, so essential to 
the well-being of the Nation, are claimed, this court will 
always be on the alert against intrusion by Congress . . ." 

Similiar intrusion by a handful of influential politicians 
would be even more nefarious.

The isolation of scientific disci*

"Fiscal autonomy Is the single 
most important piece of legisla-

since its establishment more 
than 100 years ago" University 
of Massachusetts President John

this year's tmnual meeting. 

"It is," he said, "the basic driv-

universities in the nation." 

The University's top adminis-

we have developed one of the 
elemental aspects of good man- 
agement, symbolized by that

Dr. Goldman, a professor of

was the "Great Society."

edged groups will have attained 
the same educational and eco-

is still in progress, did not be- 
gin until the end of the 19th 
century. He termed this the 
"Bread and Butter" revolution. 

IT WILL BRING everyone 
an opportunity to earn enough 
money to give him a standard 
of living above the subsistence 
level. It will bring us to what he 
called a "good society." 

The third revolution, which 
Dr. Goldman anticipates, will 
bring us to the "Great Society," 
has already begun, even though 
the second is not yet finished. 

It began, he said, after World 
War II, when situations of ex- 
tremes of wealth and poverty 
were clearly on the wane In the 
United States. It was the first 
time in history when many peo- 
ple had more than a high school 

sonable standard of living, these 
people began to ask themselves 
where they and their country 
were headed. 

This situation marked the be- 
ginning of the transition from a 
good society to a great one, Dr. 
Goldman said. 

This transition Is currently 
demonstrated by such events as 
the summer fine arts festival 
at UMass and a new Interest In 
the arts shown by the last two 
presidents of the United States. 
this one would have been 
laughed at fifteen years ago," 
Dr. Goldman declared. 

He also cited the new rapport 
between the intellectual and 
business communities as indica- 
tive of the transition to a great 
society. Until a few years ago. 
he said, the two were bitterly 
hostile to each other. 

The reason for that hostility, 
he explained, was that the 
intellectuals always sought im- 
provements in the economic lev-

"Most members of the Board 
win recall the very serious han- 
dicap that the University suf- 
fered in the years prior to fiscal 
autonomy. It was always diffi- 
cult and generally impossible to 
attract to the University any 
first-rate faculty. The reason 
for this was that It was known 
nationally in academic circles 
that decisions at the University 
could not be made on sound edu- 
cational grounds but had to be 
constantly trimmed to the de- 
mands of political considera- 

"After several years of pro- 
longed effort on the part of the 
President and the faculty, a na- 
tional image of the University 
as an institution where policy- 
making is based on educational 
grounds is beginning to emerge. 
The University is potentially 
ready to become a first-rate in- 
stitution in the next few years. 
All these hopes, all this hard 
work, has been seriously set 
back and placed in jeopardy by 
the medical school decision. 

"In the academic world, as in 
any other profession, the good 
opinion of the members of the 
professional community Is the 
most valuable asset an Institu- 
tion can have. It Is worth untold 
thousands of dollars, yet it can- 
not be bought. It Is the most 
significant earmark of quality 
in an institution and it is not 
easily earned, but it can, like 
any reputation, be destroyed 
overnight by a mistaken judg- 

"Such a mistaken judgment 
has, in our opinion, been ren- 
dered by a majority of the 
Board of Trustees in this in- 
stance. In discussion at national 
meetings of professional associ- 
ations several of us have al- 
ready encountered a change in 
attitude toward the University. 
What was previously looked up- 
on as a strong institution grow- 
ing rapidly towards excellence, 
is now looked upon as a case to 
commiserate about. Our own 
faculty has had a serious blow 
to its morale and to its faith 
that the Board would provide 
leadership for the University 
that would demonstrate educa- 
tional statesmanship of the 
highest order. Several top-level 
faculty we have been hoping to 
entice to the University have 
demonstrated in the past week 
a real reluctance to move to- 
ward firmer negotiations. The 
word Is out that the political 
forces that notoriously affect 
the state government in Massa- 
chusetts have now moved In on 
the University and that from 
now on political rather than ed- 
ucational considerations may be 
expected to dominate crucial 

"Whether this verdict is a just 
one we are not in a position to 
say. We can only testify that it 
Is the verdict and that, as such, 
It Is a tragic one with disas- 
trous consequences for the fu- 
ture of the University and of 
higher education in the Com- 
toe in the door of an educa- 
tional institution, they very 

quickly take over the total op- 
eration and destroy its educa- 

"It is. however, difficult to 
avoid the conclusion that the 
verdict is a just one. The prin- 
cipal academic recommenda- 
tions of the Booz, Allen and 
Hamilton report were for a 
campus location for the Medical 
School. We have been unable to 
discover that the Board ever 
seriously discussed the advan- 
tages and disadvantages of the 
Worcester location. This, if true, 
would be sufficient in Itself to 
call for a reconsideration. 

"The most widely pressed ar- 
gument for the Worcester loca- 
tion has been that It is a 'com- 
promise.' But a compromise be- 
tween what? Since all the aca- 
demic recommendations were 
for a campus location, the only 
possible other force to compro- 
mise with is political pressure. 
A compromise .between two 
equally good academic loca- 
tions is perhaps justifiable. A 
compromise between a good 
academic location and political 
pressure is intolerable. 

Such a compromise strikes at 
the very roots of the institu- 
tion. It destroys the academic 
integrity of the University and. 
by so doing, can ultimately de- 
stroy the institution Itself. All 
of the history of higher educa- 
tion in the United States shows 
that once political forces get a 
tional effectiveness. A Board of 
Trustees is a University's pri- 
mary bulwark against such 
pressures. No threat of re- 
duced appropriations nor of leg- 
islative disapproval can be al- 
lowed to move the Board from 
its primary responsibility to the 
educational welfare of the Com- 
monwealth. Once the dike is 
breached the flood will surely 

"Questions already being 
asked on this campus and else- 
where reveal this deep-seated 
concern: 'WUl political pres- 
sures over-ride future decisions 
when all academic advice is to 
the contrary?' 'Does education- 
al statesmanship exemplify it- 
self in political decisions?' 
'Have the Trustees abdicated 
their responsibility?' 'How can 
we possibly retain present fac- 
ulay and persuade future pro»-

el for the working classes. The 
improvements are now well on 
their way, resulting in the con- 

that intellectuals are business- 
minded, and vice versa. Dr. 
Goldman said. College gradu- 
ates enter business now with 
substantially the same training 
that the old opponents of the 
business world had. 

This new friendliness between 
the old enemies began early in 
the bread and butter revolution 
and was a direct result of it. 

The conciliation was antici- 
pated by the merging of the 
conservatives and the liberals 
which has become especially 
pronounced since the end of 
World War H. 

LIBERALS, once concerned 
with assuring everyone an ade- 
quate standard of living, are 
now becoming more concerned 
with the loss of individual lib- 

erty which has resulted from 
the bread and butter revolution. 

Conservatives, on the other 
hand, who had feared the loss 
of individual liberty in the first 
place, have been forced to com- 
promise their principles to the 
extent that it has become diffi- 
cult to tell who is a conserva- 
tove and who is a liberal.

Highway Safety Urged 
Over Holiday Weekend 

Vacation time is here and with 
it motor vehicle travel takes on 
a special significance as many 
families spend a large part of 
their vacation time traveling on 
our highways. For most vaca- 
tioners, it becomes a most en- 
joyable time of the year. For 
thousands of others, it becomes 
a time of sorrow and regret be- 
cause of accidents in which peo- 
ple are injured and killed. 

Other than disease, more chil- 
dren die in traffic accidents than 
from any other cause. All 
schools in Massachusetts closed 
for summer vacation releasing 
about one million school-age 
children from classroom super- 
vision. This fact, coupled with 
more licensed operators and 
more motor vehicles on our 
highways than ever before, cre- 
ates a serious highway hazard — 
for children are apt to be at 
play anywhere. 

"Motorists must exercise more 
than usual caution while they 
are driving in areas where these 
boys and girls are apt to be at 
play or bicycle-riding, and par- 
ents and guardians as well must 
provide more than the usual 
amount of supervision which 
they give during school season," 
said Registrar McLaughlin today 
in speaking of vacation time, 

"In urban areas, near parks 
and playgrounds, in crowded re- 
sidential areas, near beaches and 
other sunmier resort or recna 
tional areas, the opportunity for 
motor vehicle accidents is great- 
ly increased," he continued. "Mo- 
torists must be cautioned of this 
danger and try to avoid it. It is 

my earnest hope that all laotor 
vehicle operators will adjust 
their driving to allow sufficient 
time to stop in case of emer- 
gency. He cannot remain com- 
placent while the death and in- 
jury toll continues to mount. I 
urge your support in slowing 
down on the highways so that 
others may live," he concluded. 
During July and August last 
year, 19 children, age 14 and un- 
der, were killed and 3,413 chil- 
dren in the s£ime age group were 
injured — about 425 injtu*ed week-

Senior Advice To Freshmen: 
DonH Be A ^Tassive Sponge 

Editor's note: This is the second in a series of five special editorials loritten to freshman from grad- 
uating seniors. The authors ail graduated with high cumulatiiv averages and were engaged iyi a 
variety of extra-curricular actiinties. To use the v ernacuar, "they know their stuff," and their words 
are not to be taken lightly. 

by Christopher Hench 

In an essay in the Atlantic 
Monthly (May, 1954), Walter 
Lippman pointed out that "it is 
the deficit in our educational ef- 
fort which compels us to deny 
children fitted for leadership of 
the nation the opportunity to 
become educated for that task." 
Mr. Lippman continues with, 
"We have come to the point 
where we must lift ourselves as 
promptly as we can to a new 
and much higher level of inter- 
est, of attention, of hard work 
... of expenditure, and of dedi- 
cation to the education of the 
American people." 

It would be easy for students 
to accept this perspective and 
blame the University for all of 
their problems and failures. 
The truth, however, is that the 
University is trying to fulfill

the growing demands of educa- 
tion. In a very short time, it has 
achieved a remarkable degree 
of success. 

The dilemmas that still exist 
are the products of the size and 
scope of the university. In 1962, 
the enrollment was 7,450. By 
1970 it will have reached 15,000. 
This situation presents the fac- 
ulty and the administration 
with thousands of individual 
problems which they have not 
the time to solve. The school is 
too big to nurture each student 
into easy success. Thus, the stu- 
dent feels neglected, ignored 
and helpless before the machin- 
ery of mass education. 

What can he do? He can re- 
solve on the first day of class 
that he will not accept apathy 
and that he will not be a help- 
less or careless victim of un- 
avoidable circumstances. Accept 
the situation and recognize that 
in the system an excellent edu- 
cation may be found. The stu- 
dent's role can no longer be 
that of the passive sponge. Edu- 
cation must be pursued and 
problems must be solved by the 
student. This is his responsibil- 

There is no point in schedul- 
nng a course and spending the 
rest of the semester regretting 
the choice. A little effort, a 
question to the right person, 
could prevent such mistakes. 

Anonymity is the road to be- 
ing a victim. If a professor has 
to choose between a'C and a B 
for a student, the only genuine 

criteria he can have is his opin- 
ion of the student and the stu- 
dent's efforts. If the professor 
doesn't know the student, the 
decision must be arbitrary. Why 
take a chance? Talk to your 
professors. Ask questions and 
display the curiosity that de- 
mands knowledge. With 100 stu- 
dents n a class, a professor will 
know 10 or 20. He would like to 
know more. Make yourself 

If the student has a problem, 
he will become aware of the 
complexities of mass education. 
If he sits and waits, he will 
find that no one is going to 
solve his problem. If he looks 
for help, he will find many very 
busy men who cannot easily 
take time out for one problem. 
The active student, the mature 
realist, will keep working at 
his problem until it is solved. If 
an advisor can't help, the Deans 
are available. A problem will 
not solve itself, nor will anyone 
volunteer to solve it. The solu- 
tion lies in student effort. 

All of these are but examples 
that illustrate the proper role 
of the student. The student 
must lift himself to a "higher 
level of interest, of attention, of 
hard work ... of expenditure, 
and of dedication to education." 
He must not be distracted by 
the trivial, deluded by ignorance 
or stymied by insignificance. 
His job is to get an education, 
and for this, he must accept th6 
responsibility of his own life 
and actively help himself to 
gain his ambitions. "Don't be a

Deans Lay Charge of Political Compro 

(Continued from page 1) 
pectlve faculty that the Board 
will make non-political decis- 

"To what extent these suspic- 
ions are justified only the Board 
members who voted for Wor- 
cester can say. That they are 
widely voiced and deeply be- 
lieved is a fact to which we can 
testify. If the Board is to retain 
the confidence of the faculty 
and of the academic community 
nationally, it must absolve it- 
self from any suspicion of poli- 
tical pressure. The only way it 
can do this is to move to re-con- 
sider its vote; to then reopen 
the question and examine fac- 
tually and impartially the ad- 
vantages of a campus site ver- 
sus Worcester. After such an 
examination, with full discus- 
sion, it should take an open 
vote, announce its decision and 
state for the people of the Com- 
monwealth the exact reasons 
which compelled it to reach 
such a decision. 

"Because we feel so strongly 
about the devastating effects of 
the present action on the repu- 
tation of the University and of 
the Commonwealth we urgently 
request the Board of Trustees 
to meet In joint session with the 
Council of Deans so that we 
may convey to you our concern 
over the danger Inherent in the 
present situation and discuss 
possible modes of action con- 
cerning it. 

"We believe that this decis- 
ion, if allowed to stand, will go 
down in the history of the Uni- 
versity as the beginning of the 
death of the institution. 11 rec- 
covery occurs it will take dec- 
ades. All the effort that you and 
we have put forth in the last 
five years will be wasted. If the 
arguments for Worcester are 
found to be more substantial 
than those for a campus site, 
let the decision be made for 
Worcester. But in any event let 
the decision be made after due 
discussion of the careful study 
made by competent persons and 
in accord with reasons that can 
be defended in an open forum. 
For the Board to do any less is 

"Finally, we remind you that 
the Board of Trustees of the 
University is legally independ- 
ent of the legislature because of 

the recognition that its judg- 
ment must be separated from 
political considerations. The 
legislature recognized this inde- 
pendence when it left the decis- 
ion on the medical site of the 
Board of Trustees as a non-po- 
litical body. We urge you not to 
surrender the hard-won separa- 
tion of education from politics 
\n Massachusetts by letting this 
decision stand." 

"The record of progress made 
by the University of Massachu- 
setts during the past three years 
can be matched by few universi- 
ties in this country. The Uni- 
versity's remarkable increase in 
stature is a direct consequence 
of the statesmanlike use of the 
power rightly conferred on the 
Board of Trustees by the so- 
called "autonomy" legislation of 

"It is our duty to Inform you 
that we, the Academic Deans of 
the University of Massachusetts, 
are unanimous in the convic- 
tion that your recent decision 
concerning location of the Medi- 
cal School Is Indefensible on ed- 
cational grounds. If It Is imple 
mented, we are convinced that 
the development of a first-class 
state university will be retard- 
ed bv at least a decade, If not 

entirely precluded. We, there- 
fore, respectfully request that 
your decision on this matter be 
reconsidered at the earliest pos- 
sible moment. We also request 
the opportunity to present our 
views orally to the entire mem- 
bership of the Board. 

"In anticipation of our meet- 
ing with you, let it suffice to 
set forth below a brief summa- 
ry of the reasons supporting 
our request. 

"A good medical school can- 

not be developed in today's 
world without having a good 
university either in close prox- 
imity or at the same location. 
To initiate development of a 
third branch of the university 
simultaneously with the initia- 
tion of a new medical school 
and a new Boston campus 
seems inconceivable. The unnec- 
essary extra expense and the 
unnecessary dilution of effort 
inevitably would have an ad- 
verse effect on all three cam- 
puses. Highly competent faculty 
will be extremely reluctant to 
cast their lot with any branch 
of such a University. 

"We also question the wisdom 
of making such a fateful educa- 
tional decision by a barest pos- 
sible majority, in the absence of 
one trustee, and by secret bal- 
lot. As educational statesman 
and unlike elected office-holders 
who are understandably subject 
to political pressures, the Trus- 
tees of a University are expect- 
ed to reach a consensus based 
on educational considerations

no discussion of the relative

late last spring behind Fisher 
Lab and Stockbridge Hall. This 
three-story, white trinimed brick 
structure is the home of the De- 
partment of Food Science and 
Technology, which instructs in 
the technological processes and 
research of the production, pre- 
servation and packaging of food 
and food substances. The build- 
ing includes incubators, sterliza- 
tion rooms, preparation rooms, a 
pair of explosion-proof research 
rooms, general classrooms, semi- 
nar rooms, and faculty offices- 
bringing under one roof the 
many department facilities for- 
merly using five buildings. The 
general contractor for the 45,000 
square foot building was the Jef-

At the same end of campus 
near the Goessman Lab, is the 
most modernistic structure on 
campus, the Engineering Build- 
ing Building Addition. Wide ce- 
ment stairways lead to a second 
floor which has an aircraft car- 
rier appearance. While its archi- 
tecture is radically different 
from the original building, the 
addition provides more room for 
the mechanical, electrical, chemi- 
cal, and civil engineering depart- 

It features a 300-seat audi-

less than 18 months by Daniel

the final addition to Morrill Sci- 
ence Center. Geology, microbio- 
logy, and zoology share the new 
wing, an expansion of the exist-

plex' first low-rise dorms. These 
are three and four-story struc- 
tures that will be joined by two 
high-rise (22-story) dorms with-

expected to be opened for second 
semester for these dorms, and 
another commons was started 
during the summer to service 
three more high-rise structures 
scheduled for opening the follow- 
ing fall. A third commons and 
more low-rise dorms will com- 
plete the site by 1968. 

Much of the rest of the con- 
struction to be done in the next 
year will belong to the College 
of Arts and Sciences. Most im- 
portant will be the first addition 
to Bartlett Hall next to Me- 
morial Hall, directly in front of 
Curry Hicks Cage. This will be 
an upright L-shaped structure 
with two floors of 26 classrooms 
for languages. Topping part of 

this building will be five office 
floors. The $3,138,000 cost of this 
building was approved by the 
legislature in the 1965 budget. 

The first addition will include 
a free-standing three-floor build- 
ing halfway between the addi- 
tion and Bartlett HaU, connected 
to both by an underground pass-

first floor lobby and, upstairs, 
two large theater-type lecture 
rooms, each with 150 capacity.

looking structure at the Univer- 
sity. The basic design is in the 
shape of an I, the second and 
third floors narrower than the 
first floor as well as the fourth, 
fifth and sixth faculty and grad-

The two narrow floors will pro-

An added feature will be con- 
crete visors outcropping from

fall of 1967. 
Three other Arts and Sciences

by Dan Glosband 

Happy Tuesday . . . What else 
can I say after a long weekend 
during which the campus was 
nearly devoid of life and activi- 
ty? I admire the fortitude of 
those few of you who remained 
here, braving the twilight-zone 
atmosphere. Nothing is as de- 
serted as a college on vacation. 

Despite the lack of people, I 
noticed an attempt by the "Or- 
chard builders" to provide the 
usual traffic jam. Cleverly sur- 
mising that less people mean 
less cars, and that less cars re- 
duce the possibility of continu- 
ing the traditional 'Tie-up on 
the hill,' they (someone, I know 
not who) took steps of their 

WORKING quickly and effic- 
iently, a trait for which UMass 
builders are rarely known, they 
littered one half of the Dickin- 
son parking lot with moderate- 
ly large boulders, thereby lim- 
iting parking space and increas- 
ing the odds in favor of the un- 
organized gymkhana. 

Little did they realize the love 
of UMass students for their 
alma mater. Mass desertion en- 
sued, foiling their (still an un- 
known entity) plot. What with 
only some thirty damsels in the 
area, there was no one to com- 
pete in their traumatic game. 

I dislike dwelling on the Or- 
chard, but it seems the only 
area open for gibe on this drea- 
ry day. I could always revert to 
comment on some of the area's 
inadequate pubs where I spent 
part of my weekend, but such 
references are frowned upon on 
a dry campus. 

THUS BACK to the Orchard, 
with a few guilt feelings. Not 
living on campus, it is difficult 
for me to realize the beauty of 
the castle on the Hill, but quite 
easy to note its more obvious 
shortcomings. Since none of you 
who dwell there have shown 
any intention of arising from 
apathy, even to the extent of a 
letter, I will content myself 

with tossing barbs your way. 

The fountain which is being 
constructed in the center of the 
quadrangle should be a thing 
of beauty and light — for a day 
or two. That short period 
should be sufficient for it to be- 
come noticeably full of cigar- 
ette butts, beer cans, candy 
wrappers, and the other numer- 
ous, often unmentionable items 
that find their way into sylvan 
pools which aren't surrounded 
by four feet of barbed wire. 

Not that I wouldn't like the 
area to be as beautiful as it 
could be, but I strongly doubt 
the cleanliness and personal re- 
sponsibility of the UMass stu- 
dent. After watching his ten- 
dencies for three years, I am 
sure that he will fail to appre- 
ciate and maintain the attrac- 
tive landscaping that is being 
done for his benefit. 

NOW BEING at a loss ' for 
subject matter, strange as it 
may seem, I must delve into the 
realm of the metaphysical to 
fill my space commitment. The 
question with which I shall deal 
is one of the more pressing 
philosophical questions of our 

Hopefully, you won't be 
frightened away by the depth 
of topic, so read on aspiring 
pedant, and marvel at my prow- 
ess and insight, or ineptitude as 
you would have it. Onward now 
to the issue at hand (or was it 

One of the more scholarly 
sources reports that his subjects 
have indicated a latent, subcon- 
scious desire to escap>e from the 
purity and chastity implications 
of the white sock to the more 
comfortable, libertine aspects 
of the gray, soiled innuendo. He 
contends that guilt-ridden stu- 
dents obtain such feelings from 
their failure to keep up with 
the college sexual revolution 
that they read about in Time 
magazine. Since they feel badly 
about their puritanical behavior, 

Summer Enrollment 
Hits New Record 

For the second year in a row, 
summer school enrollment at the 
University has reached a record 

Total enrollment in the first 
of two six-week sessions to be 
conducted this summer is about 
2578, up more than 700 from the 
high recorded last year. 

A total of 1760 undergraduate 
and special students are reg- 
istered for the current session. 
In addition, 818 graduate stu- 
dents are pursuing studies on 
the UM campus and in the Pitts- 
field graduate program in busi- 
ness administration. 

Course registrations total 3889 
for undergraduates and 1272 for 
graduate students. 

The University's "swing siiift" 
program, inaugurated last sum- 
mer, has kept pace with the gen- 
eral rise in enrollment. 

A total of 298 members of the 
class of 1969 are on campus for 
both summer school sessions, 
taking courses they would or- 
dinarily take this fall. 

Last year, 180 students part- 
ticipated in the pioneering pro- 
gram. A very high proportion of 
the original swing shifters, 178 
of the 180, successfully made the 
demanding transition and re- 
turned last February. 

Dr. William C. Venman, as- 
sistant to the provost and direc- 
tor of UMass summer sessions, 
said response to tiiis year's swing 
shift program was more enthus- 
iastic than expected. 

Venman explained that 800 
fully qualified applicants were 
invited to participate in the pro- 
gram on a first-come-first- 
served basis. The admissions of- 
fice expected only 260 to accept, 
but the respKjnse was so heavy 
that University officials were 
forced to expand the program to 
the nearly 300 who are attending. 

In line with the increased en- 
rollment this summer at UMass, 
campus activities have increased 
in size and scope. 

they combat the anachronism 
of purity by discarding the 
long-popular white sock in favor 
of the gray. 

Not beint one to place much 
strength in Freud, I tend to 
doubt the credulity of this first 

ANOTHER LESS articulate 
source, when questioned, said 
"They (gray socks) keep my 
feet warm." I investigated, but 
found no empirical evidence to 
support his contention. To the 
contrary, wine socks (colored, 
not soaked in) absorb more sun- 
light, and are thus more effec- 
tive for his purposes. 

Running out of sources due 
to the desertion of the Amherst 
area for the holiday weekend (is 
there something unpatriotic 
about Amherst for the 4th?), I 
must render my own opinions. 
Given to interested observation 
of the strange ways of the col- 
lege student, I find that one of 
them is intrinsic to solving this 
metaphysical problem. My an- 
swer is not nearly as profound 
as one delivered by a bearded 
philosophy student, whom I 
happened to encounter standing 
on his head in the Hatch, "I 
wear gray socks, therefore I 
exist." I thanked him for his 
original thinking and composed 
my layman's opinion. 

As I mentioned, there are 
certain traits common to college 
students. One of these is lazi- 
ness — particularly when the 
project involved is doing one's 
laundry. Therefore, it is my con- 
tention that gray socks are 
worn because they can be worn 
— and worn, and worn. White 
socks, after a week or so, be- 
come obviously wretched, while 
gray socks can be worn ad nau- 
seum without a trace of exter- 
al grime. Sad, but true, I fear. 

Oh well, I have strained my 
intellect with such deep think- 
ing, and will leave you until 
next week. Don't forget the 
Marcel Breuer lecture on Tues- 
day night,

Paul Dudley Wiiite 
To Lead Med. Battle 


Dr. Paul Dudley White, na- 
tionally known heart specialist 
and physician to former Presi* 
dent Ehvight D. Eisenhower, has 
accepted the honorary co-chair- 
manship of the statewide com- 
mittee being formed to protest 
the choice of Worcester for the 
University of Massachusetts 
Medical School site. 

Backed Amherst 

Dr. White's acceptance was 
announced Monday by David 
Rowell, executive director of 
the Amherst Chamber of Com- 

Dr. White already has been 
quoted as believing that Am- 
herst is the best site for the 
medical school. 

Dr. White has served as an 
executive of the National Ad- 
visory Heart Council and on 
many other national and local 
heart organizations in addition 
to being called in when Presi- 
dent Eisenhower had his heart 
attack in office in 1955. 

Rowell said an organizational 
meeting of the committee seek- 
ing to have the university trus- 
tees restudy and reconsider the 
June 11 decision will be held 
tonight at 8 in the Amherst- 
Pelham regional high school. 
Professional, medical, educa- 
tional and civic officials in the 
state have been invited. 

Coordination Eyed 

The committee also hopes to 
serve as a coordinating commit- 
tee for the various organizations 
and associations who have ex- 

pressed concern with the trus- 
tees' decision, Rowell said. 

Among the groups that have 
criticized the trustees' June 11 
decision to locate the medical 
school in Worcester are Am- 
herst board of selectmen. Mayor 
Charles V. Ryan of Springfield, 
the UM faculty senate, faculty 
members at the University, 
Granby and Amherst Chambers 
of Commerce, the UM Council 
of Academic Deans, Hampden 
District Medical Society and the 
trustees of the Municipal Hospi- 
tal in Springfield. 

Michael de Sherbinin, presi- 
dent of the Amherst Chamber 
of Commerce, said, "The re- 
sponse to Tueday's meeting has 
been very heartening." 
To Present "Whole Picture" 

De Sherbinin and Rowell said 
Chamber officials had been 
hoping they could get someone 
of Dr. White's stature to parti- 
cipate on the committee. 

"We want to present the 
whole picture to the state," they 
said. "We are not interested in 
arguing the advantages that 
could be gained for Amherst, 
but the disadvantages the state 
could suffer if the present de- 
cision is allowed to stand." 

Speaker at the meeting to- 
night, sponsored by the Am- 
herst Chamber of Commerce, 
will be Dr. George Wolf, pres- 
ident of the American Associa- 
tion of Medical Colleges and 
vice president of Tufts Univer-

College Improvement Must 
Begin with Faculty Concern 

Editor's note: This editorial 
uxis written by Bill LeGro of the 
Collegiate Press Service and uxia 
previously piiblished in the 
American, University Eagle. 

It is my opinion that a ma- 
jority of college professors 
either do not know how to teach 
or they do not want to teach. 
I have read enough on teaching 
methods and the purposes of 
teaching to be able to say this: 
teaching must inspire and chal- 
lenge the student to inquire and 
form his own opinions, wheth- 
er or not they agree with those 
of the professor. Teaching must 
cultivate a student's interest in 
the specific subject, whether or 
not that subject will become the 
student's major field. And, of 
course, teaching must present 
the facts, whether or not the 
professor agrees vith them. All 
these factors are necessary to 
enable a student to truly learn 
and to be able to use the in- 

However, too many profes- 
sors are merely "telling" their 
subjects, not teaching them. The 
result of many professors' dron- 
ing lectures is complete and ut- 
ter boredom for most of their 
classes. The textbooks assigned 
are many times equally boring 
and repetitive. Enough of these 
lectures and substandard texts 
- may discourage a student so 
much as to cause him to wonder 
if he is taking the right major 
for his aptitudes or even if he 
belongs in college at all. This 
last occurs when the student be- 
lieves it must be his fault that 
he does not like the courses and 
cannot study properly for them. 

The professor assigns term 
papers to the class, yet he rare- 
ly reads them thoroughly, usu- 
ally handing them over to an 
over-worked, underpaid, frus- 
trated, and sometimes neurotic 
graduate assistant who may or 


may not be qualified to pass 
judgment. The professor, mean- 
while, continues to present dull, 
worthless lectures to his suffer- 
ing students — dull because he 
has no true teaching ability or 
active imagination and worth- 
less because the student memo- 
rizes only enough to get a fair 
grade on an exam and then does 
not use the material further, ex- 
cept if it happens to be subject 
matter in his major. 

This method of instructing 
defeats the entire purpose of ed- 
ucating and education as out- 
lined above. 

There are at least two 
changes that could and should 
be made to improve the college 
level educational system: 

(1) Require a professor to 

have minored in principles and 
methods of education, or re- 
quire him to take education 
courses and to practice teach 
elsewhere before permitting 
him to teach college courses. 
The more the experience in ac- 
tual teaching (as opposed to 
lecturing), the higher his posi- 
tion, and salary, should be. 

(2) Institute a system of 
checking on professors, using 
professional educators to sit in 
on lectures and read assigned 
texts. The clarity, effectiveness, 
and presentation of the lecture, 
along with teaching experience, 
would determine the evaluation 
of the professor and subse- 
quently his position, rank and 
salary, as a professor. The

Writes from South 

Editor's note : From time to time, the Summer Collegian will he

foday was a lazy day in Williamston. After a week of contacting 
people about the political education classes we will be teaching, we 
needed a rest. 

The response of the Negro community to us has been fairly good, 
if a bit reserved. We will have a better idea after Monday night, 
when we nold our first mass meeting, of how we will go over. In our 
canvassing, most Negroes were polite and sounded interested, but 
many seemed to feel differently beneath the formal "Yes Sah." 

Much of the white community is downright hostile to us even 
though we haven't done anything yet. Ken Hardy UM '67, Sheila 
Long and I were walking back from the A & P last Thursday and 
were attacked by two fellows about 17 or 18. First they threw us the 
high sign from a local gas station. We ignored them and kept walk- 
ing. Next we heard them running behind us yelling, "You Nigger 
lovin' SOB'S. " One of them hit me in the back of the head. The 
other struck Ken in the chest. We turned around and stared at 
them. They sputtered loudly at us at first, then when they saw we 
weren't to retaliate, they stopped talking and just looked at 
us. \v'e turned and walked away. They didn't follow us this time. 

Yesterday while riding through the back roads to avoid trouble, 
Hugh Hawkins (Prof., Amherst College) was cut off by a carload of 
drunks who tossed a full beer can at his window. The VW wasn't 
damaged, but everyone in it was shaken up a little. 

We have averaged about an incident a day since we've been here.

ROTC building and the second 
Bartlett addition. Because the 
huge increase in enrollment has 
affected the library more than 
any other building with the pos- 
sible exception of the Student 
Union, $375,000 for design of 
Goodell's expansion was made 
top priority in this year's budg- 

REST after these buildings have 
been completed. Already there is 
need for an addition to the 
School of Education, a School of 
Nursing, a Plant Sciences Build- 
ing, a Life Science Building, a 
Continuing Education Center, 
and a Nuclear Physics' and Engi- 
neering Building. 

By the time the campus has 
these facilities, the 20,000 stu- 
dents will require more buildings 
for classes and more for hous- 
ing. The campus is inching its 
way into North Amherst and 
Southward over the Hadley line. 
And it will still be growing in 25 
years when the new freshmen's 
children go to the University. 
The Class of 1994 will be first to 
use or first to see many new 
facilities, just as the Class of 
'69 is the first to enjoy the 
growth of the past few years.

The participants, public offi- 
cials and medical men from 
throughout the state, along 
with the Amherst Chamber of 
Commerce, will hammer out the 
form for the committee which 
will be instituted to urge the 
university trustees to reconsider 
their decision. 

The trustees, who-are meeting 
Wednesday in Boston, selected 
Worcester on June 11 as the site 
for the medical scrool. 

Worcester was the fourth 
choice in the findings and rec- 
ommendations made by Booz, 
Allen and Hamilton, an inde-

Whether they know it or not, 
7 million American girls have it 
within their power to set a new 
marriage and fertility vogue 
that could significantly alter the 
nation's future. These young 
women are now approaching the 
peak marriage years, 18 - 21. 

Between now and 1970. their 
decisions regarding marriage 
and family size will indicate if a 
new and massive baby boom is 
imminent. They, themselves, are 
the result of the post-war baby 
boom, and their vast, unprece- 
dented numbers mark a new 
high in the U.S. fertility poten- 
tial. Five years ago, there were 
only 4.7 million girls between the 
ages 18 and 21: now there are 
6 million and by 1968 there wUl 
be 7 million. 

When the sizable groups of 
potential mothers now under 20 
move into the main childbearing 
ages, 20-29, ths group will num- 
ber one-fourth more by 1970 
than the 12.5 million today. 
There will be 6 million more 
potential mothers in the total 
group (women aged 15-44) than 
there were in I960 and 3 million 
rhore than the 38 million today. 

ALYSIS released by the Popula- 
tion Reference Bureau, the fu- 
ture size of the United States 
population will be determined by 
the marriage and fertility pat- 
terns chosen by this upcoming 
surge of brides and mothers. 

For the first decade of the 
postwar period, early marriage 
and early motherhood were 
fashionable. Age 18 became the 
most frequent marrying age for 
brides, and, on the average, one- 
fourth of all 18-year-old girls 
. were married. 

Once wed, young brides tended 
to have babies sooner. For in- 
stance, in 1961 one-half of all 
mothers were 21.4 years at the 
birth of their first child, com- 
pared to the 1940 figure of 23 
years. The 2nd and 3rd child also 
appeared earlier. 

This advance of births has re- 
sulted in a concentration of 

ages. Consequently, the average 
American wife has been having 
her last child whUe still in her 
twenties, after having had from 
two to four children. 

BETWEEN 1960 AND 1970 
there will be a 40 percent in- 
crease (from 11.1 million to 15.4 
million) in the number of wo- 
men in the prime childbearing 
ages, 20-29. By 1980 the 20-29- 
year-olds will nearly double to 
a count of 20 million. 

For the past 30 years the 
number of American women 
aged 20-29 has stood at 10 to 12 
milUon. Although the physical 
capacity of this group to repro- 
duce has not changed very 
much, the fertility (actual num- 
ber of children born) has fluc- 
tuated from a low during the 
depression in the 1930's to a 
peak in 1957. 

The fertility rate (live births 
per 1,000 women aged 15-44) 
was 75.8 in 1936 and 122.9 in 
1957. Since 1957 there has been 
a steady downward trend to 
105.6 in 1964. During the first 
three months of 1965, the rate 

was 99. 

As the increased number of 
prime fertile women (aged 20- 
29) start having babies, will 
they choose the higher fertility 
of the 1950' s or foUow through 
with the lower fertility rates of 
the early 1960's? 

MOUS increase of potential 
brides and mothers, the number 
of children desired by these wo- 
men becomes of crucial import- 
ance. If they choose the "two- 
to-four-child" famUy— the fash- 
ion set in the 1950" s— then the 
nation is in for a baby boom of 
unprecedented magnitude. Such 
a high-fertility rate during the 
late 1%0's and the decade of the 
1970' s could result in a total 
U.S. population of nearly 400 
million by 2005. The U.S. popu- 
lation today is close to 195 mil- 

If, on the other hand, the 
brides-t6-be follow a trend to- 
ward fewer babies, the potential 

of the baby harvest would be 
considerably diminished. With 
so many more women in the 
prime childbearing years, even 
fewer babies per woman could 
produce a minor baby boom. But 

toward downward fertility ex- 
pectations. This trend could lead 
to a continuance of the present 
lower fertiUty levels and smal- 
ler family size. 

"What motivated this shift,' 

it these young mothers-to-be opt Cook pointed out. is mamly a 

for the "one-to-three-child" 
family, then the Shockwaves 
hitting the schools and other 
vital areas will be less devastat- 
ing, and the prospect of 300 
rather than 400 million Ameri- 
cans in 2005 will be the more 
hkely one. 

"Somewhere within this wide 
range of fertility possibilities 
lies the answer to the trend of 
population growth during the 
next generation. There is an el- 
ement of mystery as to which 
factors will determine the fer- 
tility of those 20 million key 
women," said Robert C. Cook, 
President of the Population Re- 
ference Bureau. "The U. S. 
birth rate (21.6 births per 1,000 
population) is definitely a con- 
trolled birth rate. Its level is not 
determined by the availability or 
adequacy of contraceptives. The 
birth rate reached an all-time 
low of 18 in the mid-1930' s when 
the contraceptive art was far 
less advanced. Its fluctuations 
since then have been due to the 
attitudes and decisions of the 
couples in the high - fertility 
age groups. The shift from the 
two- or three-child 'ideal fam- 
ily' of a generation ago to the 
three- or four-child ideal of the 
1950's was a matter of millions 
of individual decisions influenced 
strongly by popular attitudes." 


indicate that the current down- 
ward shift in the fertility pat- 
tern since 1957 coiild be due to 
a change in the timing of births. 
Young couples, particularly the 
youngest ones (18-24), are plan- 
ning for more of their children 
to come somewhat later in mar- 
ried life. This change from the 
shorter birth intervals of the 
1950's to longer ones implies not 
only a postponement of births, 
but possibly marks the first step

matter of conjecture; It is un 
questionably related to a recog- 
nition on the part of the young 
people who have embarked on 
matrimony in recent years that 
rearing children and educating 
them, especially through college, 
is an expensive undertaking. An 
important factor may be an a- 
wareness of the problems which 
the parents of four children — 
even of three children — have 

"The very real possibility of a 
'second-stage baby boom' trig- 
gered by the rising fertility po- 
tential discussed above has al- 
arming implications. 

"In view of the difficulties now 
being experienced by reason of 
the rapid growth since 1947 — 
in education and in social ad- 
justment—it is to be hoped that 
the downward trend in the fer- 
tility rate over the past seven 
years will continue. 

THE OUTLOOK for rapid 
progress in the development of a 
Great Society will be far more 
favorable if this is so. 

"At the present death rate in 
the United States, an average of 
2.2 children per woman is nec- 
essary to maintain a stationary 
population. An average of three 
children per woman means in- 
creasing the population by about 
50 percent in each generation.

United States Armed Forces has 
used this system for the past 
several years with very favor- 
able results; poor intructors 
have been for the most part 
weeded out and the quality of 
presentation and understanding 
has increased immeasurably. 

Professors, ot course, would 
claim both these changes as in- 
fringements on their academic 
freedom. This so-called "aca- 
demic freedom" is the crutch 
professors use to defend their 
every action, or inaction, from 
failing students, to conducting 
office hours for only one hour 
three days a week. 

And some would say that If 
the student were really interest- 
ed in a specific field, he would 
need but little professorial stim- 
ulation. But the vast, vast ma- 
jority of students do need stim- 
ulation, even if they are inter- 
ested in a specific field. And 
many times students do not 
know what they are interested 
in. It is the duty of the profes- 
sor, in his position as a teacher 
and a counselor, to help the 
student determine what his in- 
terests are. All that students 
are getting now is discourage- 
ment and disillusionment . be- 
cause the professors and the 
university are not doing their 

I am not saying the students 
should be babied or prodded in 
any way, for after all, as some 
will point out, this is college, 
which is supposed to prepare us 
for the hard cold world. The 
point is, though, that college is 
not preparing us by using this 
faulty educational (?) system. 
The faults are fundamental and 
require Immediate remedies.

UMass, Worcester To Air 
Site Polemics Before Board 

Trustees To Take 'Whatever 
Action ' Seems Necessary 

BOSTON— University of Mas- 
sachusetts trustees Wednesday 
voted to hear the committee of 
the faculty, the committee of 
deans, a Worcester delegation 
and a state labor council delega- 
ion relative to choice of a medi- 
cal school site. The afternoon of 
that hearing day the week of 
July 26 will see "whatever ac- 
tion" seems necessary taken. 

Word Avoided 

Thus, without using the word 
"reconsider" to which there 
were sharp objections, the trus- 
tees laid the groundwork for 
possible reconsideration of the 
selection of Worcester as a site 
for the medical school. 

The University faculty and 
deans have voiced strong pro- 
test, to the apparent annoyance 
of some trustees, against the 
12-10 June 11th decision for 
Worcester. The Worcester dele- 
gation will thank the trustees 
for the decision and give sup- 
port for it. It is expected the 
State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, 

will give further support to the 
Worcester site selection. 

Reservations about the Wor- 
cester site were expressed by 
Dr. Lamar Soutter, dean of he 
proposed medical school, and 
the trustee buildings and 
grounds committee chairman, 
John W. Haigis, Jr., of Green- 
field. They said none of the 
three sites seen so far has suf- 
ficient space for a medical 
school, additions of a dental and 
veterinary medicine school and 
later a possible university 
branch in Worcester. 

Not Controlled 

Protesting vehemently at the 
meeting that editorial writers 
don't know what they are talk- 
ing about and declaring, "I was 
not controlled politically," was 
Hugh Thompson of Milton, a 
labor leader. 

Doubting that the deans 
"could add anything to the slan- 
derous" things they have al- 
ready put out was George L. 
Pumphret, a trustee from Bos- 

Bishop Christopher J. Weldon 
of the Springfield Roman Cath- 
olic diocese, however, said the 
"members of the faculty are a 
part of our team. . . . The bur- 
den is upon them to present 
reasons to change. the decision. 
... I will have an open mind 
when we have the meeting. . . I 
think we should all go into the 
meeting with our minds wide 
open. . ." 

Not Happy with Decision 
Earlier he stated, "The board 
has taken its action. There were 
bound to be a lot of unhappy 
people. . . If we reconsider, it 
should be on the basis of sound 
reasoning, not because there Is 
a lot of hue and cry. . . We made 
the decision. I am not happy 
with the decision, but we made 

Discussion of the trustees 
ranged rather widely, and at 
times there were several mo- 
tions pending. At one point 
Thompson moved that the facul- 
ty representatives bp called In 
next week. He withdrew that 
move when Dennis M. Crowley, 
a trustee from Boston, protest- 
ed It would be a "discourtesy to 
the president," John W. Leder- 
le, who is on a world tour and 
not due back until July 18. 
Agreeing the meeting should be 
(Continued on page k) 

ing about 400 met to urge the 
trustees to reconsider their vote 
and make a more reasonable de- 
cision about the Med school site. 
Most of the speakers referred 
to the Booz, Allen and Hamilton 
report that selected Amherst as 
the first choice based on 34 cri- 
teria. The lone dissenter was 
Springfield Mayor Charles Ryan 
who said that "we would be 
missing a good bet if we train 
them (doctors) in a pristine, up- 
per class, small white communi- 

Mayor Ryan recommended 
that the trustees read the re- 
port, reconsider and take a 
week off in September to tour 
the towns to gather first-hand 
information on the sites. 

The other speakers made the 
following points: 

Dr. George A. Wolf, president 
of the Association of American 
Medical Colleges, vice president 
of Tufts University for Medical 
and Dental Affairs— 

• "We don't want the kind 
of school that takes the left- 
overs ... we want a topflight 
school that might have different 
objectives than Harvard or 

• Don't build just to save ex- 
isting buildings that may not be 
suitable for teaching. 

RYAN — We must 
stand together and 
urge the Trustees to 
reconsider Western 

• A med school needs land to 
expand. Amherst has the land. 

• The trend in med schools 
is to move establish med schools 
in close relation to existing edu- 
cational facilities. 

• The school can't be moved 
once it is established. 

Amherst Town Manager Al- 
len Torrey: 

• Referring to B, A & H, a 
great deal of money will be 
saved by locating on the main 
university campus. 

• Duplication of facilities and 
staff would not occur at the 
Amherst site. 

Prof. Albert E. Goss, UMass 
department of psychology: 

• There would be no shortage 
of a variety of patients as Am- 
herst is located in "a large me- 
tropolitan area." From Green- 
field to Springfield there are 
100,000 residents. 

Dr. Henry Burkhards, presi- 
dent of the Hampden County 
Medical Society: 

• The Western Massachusetts 
area needs a teaching hospital. 
It will attract more doctors and 
there is a relative doctor short- 
age in the area.

This, he said, is emotionally

Breuer related two altruistic

utility and the desire to defeat 
gravity, to the change in the fun-

Senior Advice To Freshmen: 
Education Must Be Positive 

Editor's note: This is the third in a series of five special editorials voritten to freshman from gi'odiuxt- 
ing seniors. The authors all gixiduated with high cumulative averages and were engaged in a variety 
of extra-curricular activities. To use the vernacular, "they know their stuff," and their words are 
not to he taken lightly. 

The upperclassman reveals 
"gut" courses and which ones 
must be avoided lilce the plague. 
This conglomeration of advice 
is beneficial as far as it goes. 
Such advice sobers the fresh- 
man, frightens him and warns 
him what to expect if he does 
not meet performance stand- 
ards. But what it fails to do is 
to stimulate in him interest for 
studies and the academic life.

him not to stay up late at night

Entrance into college does not 
mean an abrupt break from 
previous training and orienta- 
tion. Education is not a game of 
pogo in which the student taltes 
one jump at a time and then 
stops. Education is a continual 
process building upon earlier 
knowledge to perceive new rela- 
tionships in life. Of course, to 
rely solely on one's earlier 
training without attempting to 
step into unexplored regions of 
endeavor is mental stagnation,

Work in extra-curricular activi-

be fun for the freshman — fun

from his travels until sometime 
in August. Healey, Gordon and 
Public Health Commissioner Al-

done by a gentlemen's agree- 
ment to abstain from voting. 

Thompson declared that in his 
understanding of parliamentary 
procedures there could be no re-

moved by someone who voted 
for Worcester. Lyons pointed 
out that, since the ballot had 
been secret, there would be no

it would seem in order for any- 
one to make that motion. 

Gen. John J. Maginnis, trus- 
tee from Worcester, and Thomp- 
son declared they wouldn't 
want anyone to think that re- 
consideration had been voted at 
the Wednesday meeting or that 
it was a foregone conclusion 
there would be reconsideration. 
Holding Back 
"The Worcester crowd has 
been holding back. You're going 
to hear from them," Maginnis 

Noting that the word "recon- 
sider" had not been used, Lyons 
commented, "no one should go 
away from this meeting with il- 
lusions that it will not happen 
at that time." 

Healey, a former state tax 
commissioner, commented at 
the start of the meeting that he 
felt It was a matter of courtesy 
to hear the faculty committees. 
He urged that the action be 
with all dispatch possible "so 
we can get the school going." 
He said, "I have made no secret 
of the fact that I believe the 
school should not go to Am- 
herst. . ." 

Pumphret said, "Are we going 
to give a specific time to the 
faculty or are we going to let 
'em run on all day?"

Provost Oswald Tippo sug- 
gested the faculty and the deans

was decided the four groups 
would be allowed the morning

approved contracts for further

The smell of oats, hay and 
horses, the creak of English 
leather, corn-cobs piled in un- 
tidy heaps in the corner, the 
softness of a horse's muzzle, the 
lap of his tongue and the swish 
of his tail. 

Behind the new, modern Mach- 
mer Hall, a harbinger of the 
plastic-glass Utopia to come, is 
a horse barn, old, somber, 
packed with hay, flies, tack and 
horses. Twenty Morgans and a 
few saddlebred dwell there, 
available for student use. 

As one enters, the whinnying 
of a big stud in a stall marked 
Bay State Ideal is the first in- 
troduction to the horses. In oth- 
er stalls, Classique, grand 
champion mare of 1964, pushes 
her live red-colored nose through 
the opening in the door. Bay 
State Narcissa, with a little 
spindly-legged filly romping be- 
side her, won an award for 
mare and produce. Another stud 
recently sold to a couple in Cal- 
ifornia, won the Justin Morgan 
Performance Class for 1964, His 
offspring inhabit the barn now. 
The Equestrian Club conjures 
up visions of jodpurs, hunts, 
medals, riding helmets and 
boots. But the club is not limited 
to experienced riders. Miss Judy 
McKeen, the instructor in 
charge of horses, says that the 
riding program is available for 
students who know nothing 

about riding. The classification 
of riding ability is determined 
by a test. 

First class riders are the best, 
people who have had a great 
deal of experience in working 
with horses. They are acceptable 
for the student coaching pro- 
gram, offered in the fall and 
spring, which allows the ad- 
vanced rider a chance to con- 
duct a class in riding. They will 
assist Miss McKeen in the ring 
and will be assigned one or two 
students whom they will be re- 
sponsible for. First class riders 
also have added privileges, such 
as trailrides and classe in dress- 
age, ring figures, perfection of 
form and cavaletti work. 

Second class riders, the inter- 
mediate group, are confined to 
the ring, where they are given 
instruction in the basics and in- 
termediate forms of riding. 
There is always the chance of 

Third class riders are begin- 
ners, or people who have never 
been near a horse. They are 
taught the basics, walk, trot and 

The physical education pro- 
gram offers instruction rated 
Beginner 1 and 2, Intermediate 
1 and 2 and Advanced. This pro- 
gram is open to all students in 
the University, including the 
first time, made students as 
well. These classes are conduct- 
ed in the fall and spring only. 
There are no classes in winter 
because of the weather. For the 
first time, male students as 
wishes to use his own horse in 
the program may do so. 

The Equestrian Club was 
founded five years ago. Before 
this, no student was allowed to 
handle the horses. A constitu- 
tion was developed, approved by 
the University Senate, club elec- 
tions were held and the club 
was established. At this time 
there was no permanent riding 
instructor for the students, and 
the right to ride was earned by 
working in the barn, grooming 
and feeding the horses, sweep- 
ing the floor, polishing the tack, 
and cleaning the stalls. This is 
still done by the students, but 
the ranks are dwindling. 


The University of Massa- 
chusetts housing office is 
again looking for off-campus 
accommodations for students 
next fall. 

The University is interested 
in receiving new listings for 
moderately-priced apartments 
and single rooms with cooking 
privileges. Desirable rents for 
apartments are $70 to $100; 
for rooms, $35 to $45 per 

Especially appropriate, ac- 
cording to the housing office,

Someone Say Amherst? 

Springfield Hospital: Amherst 

Dr. White: Campus 

The medical staff of Spring- 
field Hospital prescribed a fa- 
miliar remedy this weekend for 
University of Massachusetts trus- 
tees, suffering lately from acute 
objection to their choice of a 
medical school site. 

Letters Sent 

The 250-member staff recom- 
mended that the UMass school 
be constructed in Amherst, not 
Worcester. Its views were ex- 
pressed in a letter to Gov. Volpe 
and trustees chairman Dr. Frank 

L. Boyden. 

The letter diagnosed the trus- 
tees' June 11 decision as a "has- 
tily considered choice (which) 
represents no more than a sud- 
den and expedient compromise."

The "Fantasticks" To Premier 
As First Summer Production 

Dr. Paul Dudley White, emin- 
ent heart specialist and honorary 
chairman of the Citizens Com- 
mittee on the Medical School 
Site in Amherst, said Saturday 
that the medical school demands 
close proximity to the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts campus. 

Long an advocate of locating 
the school on the main campus 
of the University, Dr. White a- 
greed a week ago to assist action 
aimed at bringing about recon- 
sideration by the trustees and is 
currently working with the citi- 
zens committee. 

Would Enhance Prestige 
Among the advantages Am- 
herst can provide a medical 
school, Dr. White mentioned the 
economical coordination of fac- 
ulties and the intermingling of 
student bodies which would ex- 
pose medical students to the hu- 
manities and scientific disciplines 
other than medicine, plus the at- 
traction of a top-flight full time 
medical faculty. 

Dr. White said the location of 
the medical school in Amherst 
would enhance the University's 
prestige and that the University 
would suffer if the medical school 
is established el-sewhere. Dr. 
White referred to the unanimous 
report of the University deans 
which indicates this. 

Other arguments which sup- 
port the seiectiun ut Amherst us 
the site for the school, as men- 
tioned by Dr. White, are an ex- 
cellent library already on the 
spot, excellent sports facilities 
for the medical students, some- 
thing lacking in most medical 

schools, excellent medical serv- 
ice for the University population 
close at hand in the new hospi- 
tal which would be built, and the 
improvement of basic research 
by the medical faculty which 
will be stimulated by the proxi- 
mity of scientists in other fields. 

Says Population Available 

Amherst, according to Dr. 
White, is a center of large popu- 
lation from which to draw pa- 
tients. Within a radius of 30 
miles are some 600,000 persons, 
he noted. With the excellent 
roads of today and tomorrow, 
this is wholly adequate for quick 
service in all specialties. 

Further training, he said, of 
upper class students, interns, and 
residents can easily be arranged 
with outlying hospitals in Spring- 
field, Holyoke, Northampton and 

Dr. White is of the opinion 
that Central and Western Mas- 
sachusetts will be more ade- 
quately served medically and 
surgically than now if the school, 
is established in Amherst. He 
termed this a much-needed and 
long-desired benefit for a neg- 
lected area. 

Less Political Pressure 
He also said that with the 
school at Amherst, there is much 
less likelihood lor any political 
pressure or interference than at 
any of the other five sites, the 
two in Boston, Worcester, Brock- 
ton, or Springfield. 

A part - time faculty, where 
needed, can also be easily se-

"The Fantasticks," one of the 
most fantastically successful 
off-Broadway musicals ever, will

Friday's performance opens 
the season for the University's

mainder of the summer, the 
company will present "The Fan- 
tasticks," "The Imaginary Inva- 
lid" and "The Rainmaker." 

The summer theatre's prem- 
ier and all subsequent perform- 
ances— 19 in all— will be pre- 
sented at 8:30 p.m. in the audi- 
torium of Bartlett Hall. 

for all performances are on sale 
daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in 
the Student Union box office. 
Tickets will also be sold in Bart- 
lett Hall from 7 to 9 on the eve- 
nings of performances. 

Harry Mahnken of the Uni- 
versity's speech department and 
University Theatre staff will di- 
rect the summer theatr.Vs pro- 
duction of "The Fantasticks." 

Francois-Regis, Marcie Ross, 
Ken Bordner, James Stockman, 
Tom Kerrigan, Michael Hench 
and Nancy Crawford will all 

appear in the play. 

"The Fantasticks" opened at 
the Sullivan Street Playhouse in 
May, 1960, and had run through 
2080 performances at its fifth 
anniversary this spring. 

SHOWS, the play is the long- 
est-running of any except "The 
Threepenny Opera." 

Two Texans, Tom Jones and 
Harvey Schmidt, are the perpe- 
trators of "The Fantasticks." 
The musical is loosely based on 
"Les Romantiques," Edmond 
Rostand's first play. 

Henry Hewes, writing in Sat- 
urday Review, called the Jones- 
Schmidt musical "a sophisticat- 
ed story about innocence. It 
tells a childishly simple ro- 
mance with an air of knowing 
at the same time its value and 
its absurdity. 

"The songs are distinguished 
and delightful. The whole show 
is the freshest and best off- 
Broadway musical in a long, 
long time." 

play-going public greeted "The 
Fantasticks" with similar 

Since opening night more 
than live years ago at the Sul- 

livan St. Playhouse, the appeal 
of "The Fantasticks" has grown 
and grown. 

Impressed by the show's suc- 
cess in New York, MGM Rec- 
ords issued an album of tunes — 
including "Try To Remember" 
and "They Were You"— from 
"The Fantasticks." The album 
in turn became highly popular. 

Adapted for television, the 
play was presented as a "spe- 
cial" last fall with a cast feat- 
uring Bort Lahr, Stanley Hollo- 
way and Ricardo Montalban. 

To date, performances have 
also been given in England, Ire- 
land. South Africa, Sweden, Fin-

Dear Camper: 

Stop for a minute. Look 
around. Think of all that has 
happened this summer . . . 

Wouldn't you have been a lot 
happier back at Boy Scout camp? 

We here at Camp Metawam- 
pe don't think so. Look at all 
we have done to make this sum- 
mer just like all those other 
joyous days of your carefree 
youth. Doubtless there are a 
few small differences, but were 
it not for them, there would be 
no transition from high school. 
And we all know that we're 
supposed to undergo transition, 
don't we? 

Reveille is at 7:00 a.m. Since 
we are far advanced from Camp 
Catchalottatwelveyearolds, we 
don't use bugles, we use bull- 
dozers. While the dirty old men 
who drive them aren't as color- 
ful as the 'Junga Din of old, 
they certainly are more effec- 

Arts and Crafts begin shortly 
after Reveille. Group A starts at 
7:45, while the other groups al- 
ternate with rest hours in be- 
tween. The Crafts shops close 
at noon, and all the campers 
go to lunch, not that many of 
them haven't been out to lunch 
all day. 

Fun time begins in the after- 
noon. Lake Amherst, located 
next to the Rec Hall (S.U.) has 
new dock facilities for boating 
and fishing. Free swim is of- 
fered later in the day. Buddies! 

Due to the advanced maturity 
of the campers, the canteen is 
open all day downstairs in the 
Rec hall. If you've been good, 
your counselor may let you go 
outside of camp for the evening. 
If you're a senior or a waiter 
you can go to the Drake for a 
coke and French fries (but I 
doubt it). 

We do prohibit gum chewing 
and drinking in the bunks, and 
comic books may be traded at 
the canteen (three Donald 
Ducks and an Archie for a Bo- 
tany I). 

We look forward to having 
you with us for the next eight 

Happy camping,

at the University of North Caro-

Amherst Dean 
Writes Handbook 


It may be easy for a neat stu-

roommate but almost impossi- 
ble if one of them likes to sleep 
with the window open and the 
other with the window shut. 

Marks are only the symbols 
of learning, not learning itself. 

There is a bottom half to 
every class. 

There are no short-cuts to 
learning, no easy paths to intel- 
lectual discoveries. 

Most college drop-outs are not 

These are among the points 
made in "The College Student's 
Handbook" by Eugene S. Wil- 
son, dean of admission at Am- 
herst college, and Abraham 
Lass, principal of the Abraham 
Lincoln high school in Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., which was published 
May 27. 

The 176-page book contains 
practical advice to students en- 
tering college and already in 
college regarding all aspects of 
academic life from study habits 
to religion, dating and the even- 
tual choice of a career. 

Many able and promising stu- 
dents don't succeed in college, 
according to the authors, be- 

1. They aren't trained to work 
on their own, to set their own 
goals, to plan and manage their 
own lives. 

2. They can't read fast or 

well enough to handle the col- 
lege's demanding reading pro- 

3. They don't know how to 
study, to use the library and to 
take notes. 

4. They don't know what to 
do with their new freedom. 
"They think freedom means 
having nothing to do and all the 
time in the world to do it." 

5. They don't know what they 
came to college for. 

6. They are in the wrong col- 
lege. They chose it without see- 
ing it or knowing what it was 
like. For them it is too hard, or 
too easy, too far from home, too 
confining, too strange, too un- 
interesting, too lacking in cul- 
tural experiences and activities. 

7. They came to college for 
the wrong reasons: family pres- 
sure, friends going, the prestige 
of the college, low tuition, close- 
ness to home, desire to meet 
boys or girls, or "nice people," 
"the right people," etc. 

The book is designed to help 
students avoid or cope with 
these problems, and to help 
eliminate the reasons for the 
fact that about half those who 
enter college never complete 
their academic careers. 

The book is being published 
by David White Company of 
New York in both hardcover 
and paperback editions.

The Collegian editorial staff welcomes your comments cmd

spaces per line, and that only one side of the paper be used. All 
letters must be signed unth your real name and address — with- 
held upon request. All letters should be addressed: Letters to The 
Editor, Collegian, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass. 
Your cooperation will be appreciated. 

To the Editor: 

"Silence is golden" but seem- 
ingly an impossibility at the U- 
Mass version of summer school. 
Noise within the four Orchard 
dorms has been the subject of 
numerous student complaints. 
In an attempt to please and ap- 
pease the students, the adminis- 
tration has ordered carpeting 
for each corridor which should 
cut down on the noise that trav- 
els from room to room. 

But, with more than 200 over- 
exuberant swing shifters, a 
weekly supply of orientation 
freshmen and over 2,000 upper- 
classmen who have been at the 
books since last September, 
room to room noise is the least 
of the students' worries. 

The commotion that has be- 
come common to the Orchard 
dorms is due to a combination 
of aspiring singers, suddenly in- 
dustrious landscapers and a 
group of boys who seem to 
think that everyday is either 
the Fourth of July or the Chi- 
nese New Year. Oh, let us not 
forget to add the boys who 
seem to feel the only place to 
graphically describe last night's 
date is underneath the windows 
of the girls' dorms. In short, 
not only has studying become 
an impossibility, but also sleep 
is becoming only a pleasant 

memory of the good old days 
when all one had to contend 
with was the relatively minor 
noise of the record player down 
the hall or the radio next door. 

The landscapers and their 
tractors are there for a reason 
— to build a fountain. Their 
noise is annoying, but at least 
one can find a reasonably sensi- 
ble explanation for it. Occasion- 
al groups of folksingers are en- 
joyable, but I thought Festival 
Field was in Newport. As for 
our fire-cracking friends, I 
tend to think that their imma- 
turity is matched only by their 

The problem may sound un- 
important. To those who have 
created it, I'm sure it is. But to 
those who are in summer 
school to begin their college ca- 
reer or earn those last few 
credits with which to end it, the 
problem is one that must be 

Tacking up a "quiet please" 
sign won't work; shouts from 
the balcony only add more con- 

What will make the Orchard 
conducive to an all around cam- 
pus life that includes study, 
sleep and recreation is the con- 
sideration of the offenders for 
themselves and for others.

Fact Or Fiction? 

As modern man probes deeper 
into the outer reaches of space, 
his curiosity about this new, ex- 
citing frontier contiyiues to grow. 
And, though our knowledge of 
space has increased a thousand- 
fold during the past 10 years, 
many misconceptions and half- 
truths still remain to puzzle the 

But, although puzzling, space 
exploration seriously concerns 
the public because of the increas- 
ing role it plays in our lives 
every day. Right this minute, 
Mariner IV is streaking towards 
a photographic rendezous with 
Mars this summer. , 

Are the following fact or fic- 
tion : 

1. The Greeks first knew of 
the modern rocket principle. 

2. During summers on Mars 
the temperature reaches 50 de- 
grees F. 

3. The heavier a body, the fas- 
ter it falls to earth. 

4. Space is empty. 

5. In space, the chance of a 
space craft being struck by a 
meteoroid is virtually zero. 

6. It Is five times easier to es- 
cape the moon's gravity than it 
is to escape the earth's. 

7. An astronaut can endure 
speeds in space up to 30,000 mph. 

8. Moving objects in space ac- 
tually contract. 

9. A space craft uses flaps to 
slow its orbital speed in order to 
return to Earth. 

1. True, In the third century, 
Greek scientist Hero demonstra- 
ted the jet engine principle. 

2. True. But the temperature 
of Mars is generally lower than 
earth's. The range is from —70 
degrees F. to 50 degrees F. 

3. False. Galileo disproved Ar- 
istotle's 20-century old theory 
that heavy bodies fall faster 
with this experiment: at the 
same instant he dropped a heavy 
object and a light object from 

the Tower of Pisa, and both 
landed simultaneously. 

4. False. Space is not empty. 
It is filled with gases, mostly hy- 
drogen, and millions of particles 
of matter. 

5. True. Even though there 
arc millions of meteoroids 1/lOth 
of an inch or larger zooming 
around up there, space is so vast, 
and a space craft so relatively 
minute, that the chances of it 
being struck are remote. 

6. True. The gravitational pull 
of earth is approximately five 
times greater. 

7. Fclse. There is no speed be- 
yond human endurance provided 
a space craft accelerates gradu- 
ally enough, and fortunately so, 
for it will take phenominal 
speeds to get man to his destina- 
tions without his dying of old 
age enroute. 

8. True. According to Ein- 
tein's Theory of Relativity 
strange things happen In our 
curved universe. When objects 
move at very high speeds over 
long distances, they actually con- 
tract in the direction of their 
motion. So if you could see a 
space craft soaring through 
space, it would appear as i • 
were squeezed "bumper-to- 

9. False, Retro rockets 
powered by solid fuel are used to 
"brake" the space craft's speed 
enabling it to come out of orbit 
and return to Earth. 

How well did you do? Now, 
consider the vastness of space, 
and realize that you are now an 
authority on one infinitesimal 
speck of it. However, that speck 
is important, because it will 
grow. (ED)

Where To Find Relaxation 

on campus 

by Tom Donovan 
"Well, what are you going to 
do? You get out of class, then 
where do you go? The Hatch is 
always full— so is the Pool Hall." 
"I don't know. There isn't any 
place to just sit around and re- 
lax. Everybody's thei-e before 
you get there." 

HOW MANY TIMES have you 
heard this conversation? It is a 
real problem here. But, there is 
a solution of sorts; there are a 
number of placep to go during 
free time. All you have to do is 

It is probably easiest to start 
at the more obvious hangouts 
and then go on from there. Some 
of them will appeal to both the 
solitude-lover and the romantic- 
ist. Others will appeal to any 
kind of gregarious sturJent. 

First is the Student Union, 
often biUed as "the hub of the 
University". Starting at the bot- 
tom and working up, the Hatch 
comes first. Just for clarity we 
can review the geographical lo- 
cations of different groups in the 
Hatch. Using the Hatch windows 
as a north compass point and the 
juke box as south, we can pin 
them all down. Starting at 
"north" we see all different 
species of ethnics, all discussing 
different things which don't real- 
ly interest then* One favorite 
topic is Zen Buddhism (they say 
it's pronounced like the Zane in 
Zane Gray). 

SOUTHEAST we find the non- 
descripts like you and me. Many 
of them look a little like cor- 
nered animals. You would too. 
Because, . . . Directly south, ex- 
tending to the invisible IFC line 
of demarcation at the juke box, 
see, they are all iaugbing at 
somebody's new joke that none 
of them understand. Then, on the 

Towards the front of the build- 
ing is the Cape Cod lounge. It's 
good for newspaper reading and 
resting. Everyone always leaves 
the day's paper lying around so 
you don't even have to buy one. 
The main lobby has a number 
of chairs and' couches right by 
the main front windows. Some 
people complain that it's Uke be- 
ing in a fishbowl. 

If they want to Jock into the 
fishbowl instead tf out, they 
should try the second floor. It 
has seats all around the balcony 
as v/ell as a number of reading 
and meeting rooms. The meeting 
rooms, like Middlesex and Nor- 
folk, are sometimes locked but 
they are always deserted and 
fine places to cram or study for 

On the whole, the Student 
Union has a lot more to offer 
than most students realize. 

THE UNION, there are a lot of 
other places to hang around. Iry 
lounging on the front steps of 
the Alumni Building sometime. 
As steps go, they are fairly com- 
fortable. You might even be 
moved to go iaside and inquire 
about the inscription on the face 
of the building It reads, "We 
will kf-ep faith with you who lie 
asleep." "St. Michiel, Aisnc 
Marne, Argonnc. Normandy, 
Guadalcanal, Leyte Gulf." Might 
be worthwhile m?terial to do an 
English composition on. 

Machmer Hall has some pretty 
attractive steps for sitting too. 
While they might not be as com- 
fortable as the ones at the Alum- 
ni Building, they make up for it 
in convenience. Machmer is righ» 
across from the Union. Locs of 
students use these steps if for 
no other reason than they may 
see an occasional Dean go in or 
out of Machme'*. 

Goodell Library offers quite a 
number of "sitti-.g steps" for 
those who like tj perch in an 
academic atmosphere. The front 
steps are a bit too traveled for 
use as seats, but the side steps 
are good. So is the little terrace 
between the Ube and BarUett 

Steps but it has a lobby and 
benches outside. Bartlett is a I 
fairly popular spot for students 
who are waiting for their next 
class to begin. The lobby fre- 
quently has art exhibits which 
are interesting and make good 
topics of conversation. 

If you are a science major, the 
steps of MorriU are the place 
f<r you. They are even lighted 
at night. Although some of the 
more romantically orientated 
students here say the lights are 
of questionable value, it is a nice 
place to sit at night, study, and 
gaze at the campus pond. 

Morrill, like the new School of 
Business Administration, also has 
a second floor library. Both are 
worth looking into. 

and up the hill is the South Com- 
mons. There ane two lounges 
that are great for just relaxing. 
Skipping a little, the North-Com- 
mons has just reopened its 
Snack Bar this year. Never 
crowded, some say it serves the 
best food on campus. Candlelight 
is provided at night. 

Half way up the h'll toward 
the dormitories is the President's 
Garden and an inconspicuous 
tropical greenhouse. In the 
greenhouse are palm trees, a 
fountain, and tropical flowers of 
every variety. The Garden is 
pleasant during the day and a 
nice place to take a walk with 
your date at any time. 
Perhaps the most well-known

The second floor balcony of the Student Union is one of many 
places students can go to relax. It offers comfortable chairs for 
studying, talking or just sitting as well as a bird's eye view of 
the main lobby. 

other side of the north-south line 
are the juke box players. They 
play the juke box. 

Moving on, the professors and 
exchange students come into 
view. They are politely trying to 
ignore the others as they sit, the 
slightest bit segregated, under 
the shadow of the cash register. 
There isn't much to say about 
the northwest corner. The peo- 
ple there are mostly normal. 
That's about it for the Hatch. 

There is always a long waiting 
list at the Pool Room so that's 
out. But, behind the Pool Room 
is the Lodge. It's only one quar- 
ter the size of the Hatch, but is 
rarely crowded. The commucers 
and chess/bridge players live 
there. There is a TV there, too. 
Not a bad place. 

When you go upstairs in the 
Union, use the s^?irs by the Post 
Office window if you like a little 
solitude. They aren't used much. 
A nice place to sit and talk with 
your girl or just to sit and read

lot to offer. You've got the Music 
Room; good for casual reading, 
too. The Reading Room is a fine 
place for a nap. Outside the 
Reading Room is the South Ter- 
race with twelve new park 
benches there. It is a nice, pleas- 
ant spot.

area on campus is the Orchard 
located above a-ct to the left of 
the Northeast Quadrangle. The 
Orchard is really what you make 
it. It is a nice place to go grassing 
of course. However, it is also 
good for getting a tan; taking a 
walk, having a picnic lunch, play- 
ing sports, studying, sleeping, or 
just conununing witi Nature. A

To Hear Appeals 

A Fall Possibility TrustcGS Meeting 



General Manager of the Western 
Mass. Bus Lines Inc. has filed a 
petition to extend the authority 
of the bus line to better serve 
the University in Amherst and 
Hadley. The extended route li- 
cense would provide authority 
between Amherst and North Am- 
V-erst, serving the University via 
North Pleasant Street. 

Presently, Western Mass. Bus 
is the only local carrier certified 
by the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Public Utilities to pick 
up and discharge students in this 

Specifically, buses for this fall 
will provide service through the 
campus to and from the new 
Alumni Stadium for football 
games and special events, and 
will provide transportation to 
and from local churches on Sun- 
days. The fare will be twenty 
cents for a one way ride. 

THE NEED for the extension 
of service, according to Mad- 
daloni, comes "with the expan- 
sion of the University. The dis- 
tance between the dormitories 
and the points to be served is too 
far to walk, therefore, the bus 
fiervice as proposed would be a 

Fills Air 

The student voice of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts is blow- 
ing in the wind this summer for 
the first time in its history. 

The sounds of hot jazz, Broad- 
way, Qassical and Pop are heard 
on the weekends from 6 p.m. to 
10 p.m. and Station Manager 
George Drake reports that ex- 
tended programming will be ef- 
fected for the last four counsel- 
ing sessions. 

WMUA will broadcast Wed- 
nesday through Sunday nights 
and Thursday through Saturday 
mornings. The morning broad- 
casts and the Friday night Pop 
show will come from the remote 
faculties in the Student Union. 

Drake invites interested and 
talented students to drop by the 
station in the engineering Bldg. 
ground floop to check out the 
studios. Potential staff members 
are always welcome at the sta- 

convenience and would be uti- 
lized by students and personnel, 
especially on those days when it 
is cold, raining, or snowing." 

No local service, other than 
that provided by the Western 
Mass. Bus Lines, is presently 
rendered at the University, so 
that no opposition is expected. 
Present plans are to commence 
both bus services in Septembar 
of this year, if licenses are is- 
sued by Amherst and Hadley, 
and a certificate received from 
the Department of Public Utili- 
ties at Boston.

BOSTON — Wednesday, July 
28 at 10:0 A.M. has been set as 
the time of trial for the Amherst 
and Worcester adversaries to air 
their Medical School opinions be- 
fore the University's Board of 
Trustees. Boston's Statler-Hilton 
Hotel will be the battlefield. 

A group of Amherst and Uni- 
versity representatives met with 
Gov. John A. Volpe at noon yes- 
terday to discuss choice of Am- 
herst as site of the Med school. 
Volpe was asked whether or 

not he had asked Atty. General 
Brooke about the legality of the 
secret ballot. He said he had not 
but that he would. 

Dr. Albert E. Goss of UMass 
surmised that they would have 
a decision before the July 26 
meeting. Goss reported that 
Volpe was also asked whether a 
delegation from UMass would be 
permitted to plead their case 
before the trustees.

Curtain Up Friday At 8:00 On 
Season Premier, Fantasticks 

"The Fantastcks," the mock- 
romantic musical that scored a 
run of more than 5 years in 
New York and successes in Eur- 
ope, Australia, South America 
and the Near East, will be pre- 
sented at Bartlett Hall for the 
1965 Summer Fine Arts Festi- 
val beginning Friday with per- 
formances repeated on July 17, 
23 and 31 and August 4, 12 and 

With a book and lyrics by Tom 
Jones, based on a. half-forgotten 
harlequinade by Edmond Ros- 
tand, and with a tuneful score 
by Harvey Schmidt, "The Fan- 
tosticfca" is another re-telling of 
the undent Pierrot and Colum- 
bine story ol tbe boy and girl 

new appreciation of each other 
who fall in love, then spoil their 
love, and then come back to a 
for final happiness. 

Ohio-ans Ken Bordner and 
Marcie Ross will portray this 
pair of sweethearts whose woo- 
ing is especially romantic be- 
cause it is forbidden. Their fa- 
thers, to be played by Bill Oran- 
sky and James Stockman, are 
neighbors and friends who hope 
for a match of their children, 
and have promoted it by pre- 
tending to an angry feud. 

For added flavor to the idyll 
the fathers even provide an ad- 
venture — a staged abduction 
of the girl in the moonlight, in 

which the young man can hero- 
ically play her rescuer. After 
the young man has handily van- 
quished the ruffians, and the fa- 
thers have "reluctantly" con- 
sented to their union, the story 
seems to have arrived at a hap- 
py ending at mid-point in the 
evening. But then the Narrator- 
doubling-as-abductor — to be 
played by Francois Regis — dis- 
closes that "A play never ends 
till we've been burned a bit." 

In a song of discontentment, 
"This Plum is Too Ripe," that 
has a compelling rhythm similar 
to that of "Mack the Knife," the 
lovers admit that "what last

from all over the country who 
are leaders in medical education 
to plead the case for Amherst. 

Volpe replied that it was up to 
the trustees to decide who they 
would allow to enter the meet- 
ing. A group from Springfield is 
also seeking admission. 

Harold Pine, administrator of 
the Holyoke Hospital pointed out 
to the Governor that 12 of the 
trustees had voted contrary to 
the professional judgment of 
management consultants Booz, 
Allen and Hamilton and that the 
trustees should consider the Med 
school in regional New England 
terms rather than in the narrow 
sense of a particular town or 


He said that the board must 
seize the initiative in regional 
planning and that the other col- 
leges in the New England area 
should be consulted, as the Med 
school will serve them all. 

GOSS SAID that if a move to 
reconsider is passed, chances 
for Amherst wiU be greatly 
strengthened. "Pressure then 
must be placed to swing at least 
two of the trustees," he said. 

The UMass professor said that 
the whole vote was a farce and 
totally unexpected. "It is now a 
desperation move for Worcester. 
The city is declining in popula- 
tion and little new capital is com- 
ing into the city. It is caught be- 
tween rapidly expanding western 
Mass. and the already large Bos- 
ton," said Goss. 

Some of the trustees will sim- 
ply not switch, said Goss, and 
"There will probably be no sup- 
port from Kennedy or the others 
who wish to stay neutral." 

Those who met with Gov. 
Volpe yesterday were state Sen.

Senior Advice To Freshmen: 
Don't Follow Bad Examples 

Editor's note: This is the fourth in a series of five special editorials unitten to freshmen from graduat- 
uating seniors. The authors ail graduated with high cumulative averages and were engaged in a 
variety of extra-curricular activities. To u^e the vemacvxir, "they know their stufj," and their words 
are not to be taken lightly. 

by Alan Grigsby 

"Diligence my son and you 
will graduate," said the proud 
father to his beanied offspring. 

Or perhaps he snarled, "Work 
hard, you bum, this is gonna 
cos*, me five grand and I want 
somethin' for my money." 

No matter what words your 
father sent you off with, if any 
at all, you will find it hard to 
comply with his wishes unless 
you have some advice from a 
sage upperclassman. 

ON THE WHOLE, upper- 
classmen are delighted to hand 
out free advice, because it 
proves how ''.nowing and expe- 
rienced they are; or, more im- 
portant, that they don't want to 
see anyone fall into the predica- 
ments they may have blundered 

Upperclassmen generally 

have good advice, about courses. 

requirements, where to go and 
what to do, but they are bad 
examples when it comes to 
studies. Not that UMass is full 
of corrupting, dirty old men 
and women. It is just that they 
are experienced in their work 
— studying. Although this va- 
ries in degrees, they make it 
look easy to freshmen. 

ROR most of these sages of the 
classroom have learned how to 
move through college life and 
still maintain a decent scholas- 
tic standing. Many come close 
to flunking out of school. Some 
do. in fact, and others never 
have a problem, but the sages 
are still in school. 

Amazing as it may seem, in- 
telligence is not necessarily the 
criterian for success in these 
stalwarts. Some of the less as- 
tute upperclassmen have good 

Two Year Course Set 
In Labor Studies Field 

The UMass Labor Relations 
and Research Center, formally 
launched May 1, will offer an 
interdepartmental master of 
science degree in labor studies 
beginning this fall. Dr. Edward 
C. Moore, dean of the Graduate 
School, announced. 

Dr. Leo F. Redfern, acting di- 
rector of the center and dean of 
administration at the Universi- 
ty, said the M.S. program in 
labor studies will normally in- 
volve two years of course work 
at UMass. 

In addition, students may 
serve as interns with labor un- 
ions or government agencies as 
part of the program. 

M. S. in labor studies will in- 
clude graduate study in labor 
relations, business administra- 
tion, economics, psychology and 

Students will be encouraged 
to elect additional graduate 
courses offered by the depart- 
ments of government and his- 
tory and by the School of Edu- 

At the undergraduate level, 
labor relations will be offered 
as a field of concentration with- 
in regular departmental majors. 

In addition lo academic offer- 
ings ai the Lniversiiys Am- 
herst campus, the Labor Rela- 
tions and Research Center will 
sponsor special institutes, work- 
siiops and seminars.

The center will focus its at- 
tention on conditions affecting 
labor in the Commonwealth. 

Established last spring by the 
University's Board of Trustees, 
the Labor Relations and Re- 
search Center is guided by an

setts labor leaders and faculty 
members of the University.

of the Labor Center in June. He 
will take up his new position

averages, while other seeming- 
ly brighter students are barely 
gelling tiirough scnool. The dif- 
lerence is a combination of ef- 
lort and concentration. 

When tne BMOC or BWOC in 
your secuon strolls out every 
weekend nighi, belongs to half 
a dozen oiganizations and still 
gets a good cumulative average, 
you know he has the power to 
do concentrated work. This is a 
person who has learned to close 
his mind for three or four hours 
a day to all the radios, news- 
papers and other distractions 
around him. 

EACH HOUR of concentrated 
study can equal two hours of 
study spiced with thougiits 
about a tennis match or last 
night's date. Beyond such allur- 
ing thoughts as these are the 
culinary delights of Joe's Grind- 
er Wagon, a basketball game, 
a movie, a drinking contest and 
other enticing amusements. 

An uppe/classman will most 
likely advise a freshman that 
the best place to study is quiet, 
isolated, a little cool and free 
from distractions. Yet, finding 
this place and using it are two 
different things. 

CONDITIONS such as these 
rarely exist anywhere, certainly 
not in a dormitory or house. 
Therefore, the nearest approxi- 
mation has to be seized upon 

Once you have a haven for 
retreat and learn to concentrate, 
you are ready to become an up- 
perclassman. All a freshman 
needs beyond this point is to 
develop the habit of sitting 
down every night and working.

SCOPE Volunteers 
Work in Williamston 

Since their arrival in this ru- 
ral North Carolina town June 
20, four students from the Uni- 
versity have been engaged in 
helping the Negro people of 
Martin county understand and 
use recent civil rights legisla- 
tion in their struggle for equali- 
ty. The four-Louis Pellisier, 
Karol Kucinski, David Walsh 
and Kenneth Hardy are volun- 
teer workers for the SCOPE 
(Summer Community Organi- 
zation and Political Education) 
Project sponsored by the South- 
ern Christian Leadership Con- 
ference. Under the direction of 
Rosea Williams, the project is 
sending teams into over 75 
counties throughout the South 
to carry out a three point pro- 
gram of voter registration, po- 
litical education and community 

The volunteers have been 
working both in WilliamMon 
(the county seat) and in the 
outlying rural areas. Initially 
much of their time was spent 
talking to workers, field hands, 
sharecroppers and farmers, en- 
couraging them to come to 
mass meetings and register for 
political education classes. 

phasis is put on gaining an un- 
derstanding of the provisions of 
the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 
the Anti-Poverty Act. Also, the 
role of organization and unity 
as a means of gaining political 
power through voting is dis- 
cussed. This is to encourage the 
people to participate in the 
planned voter registration drive 
which will be carried out as 
soon as the voting rights bill is 
passed. Present registration ef- 
forts have been frustrated be- 
cause the county has refused to 
open the registraiton' books. 

The workers' reception in the 
Negro community has been 
warm and encouraging. For

many Negroes, the workers are 
the first white people ever to 
relate to them on an equal bas- 
is. The students find that they 
too are benefiting from these 
contacts, gaining a new under- 
standing of the Negroes' predic- 
ament in the South. By estab- 
lishing these relationships the 
students hope to replace the 
fear that shackles the people 
with a militant self-confidence. 

The white community's recep- 
tion has ranged from cold 
stares to violence. On many oc- 
casions occupants of passing 
cars have shouted epithets and 
profanities. On one occasion, a 
beer can was thrown at the 
worker's car. On June 24 Louis 
Pelissier and Ken Hardy were 
attacked and beaten while walk- 
ing on Main street. Ken Hardy 
was attacked again by a gas 
station attendant on July 3. 

Attempts were made to regis- 
ter complaints, but the police 
have refused to investigate or 
offer protection.

Students Object 

Editor's note: This a copy of the letter sent to Mr. Frank L. 
Boyden, Chairman, Board of Trustees, by Richard F. Dacey on be- 
half of the Student Senate Executive Committee objecting strongly 
to the Trustees' decision. It is hoped tliat this letter is taken us 
representative of the student body position. 
Dr. Frank L. Boyden, Chairman, 
Board of Trustees 
Deerfield Academy 
Deerfield, Mass. 
Dear Mr. Boyden, 

On Tuesday, July 6, the Executive Committee of the Student 
Senate held an emergency meeting to discuss the decision of the 
Board of Trustees to locate the medical school of the University 
of Massachusetts in Worcester. 

After a thorough discussion of the issue, this committee feels 
called upon to voice strong objections to the decision of the Trustees 
and the manner in which the decision was reached. The callous 
indifference of the Board's majority to the recommendations of 
numerous experts, a nationally respected consulting firm, and the 
University community was clearly unwarranted. When combined 
with disregard of the Massachusetts Open Meeting law, the decision 
and the manner in which it was reached can only be described as 
appalling to the good sense of the overwhelming majority of the 
students of this University. 

On behalf of the students, we object to a decision based so 
clearly upon the political machinations of a few individuals. Upon 
grounds of intellectual honesty and the damage which will be done 
to the University if this decision is implemented, we call upon the 
Board of Trustees to reconsider their decision and to again weigh 
the evidence in favor of the location of the medical school in 
Amherst. Failure to do so will completely and irrevocably destroy 
the stature of the Board of Trustees in the eyes of the students 
of this University as well as in those of the overwhelming majority 
of the citizens of Massachusetts. 

Sincerely yours, 

Richard F. Dacey, Chairman 

Student Senate Executive Committee

The Pleasure Seekers 


Improves On 
Last Summer 

To the Editor: 

L.M.E. '67 does no quite un- 
derstand the reason for the pre- 
sent study atmosphere here at 
UMass. Noise is conducive to 
good study and sleep habits. 

It must be. Our Administra- 
tion always strives for the i)est 
and they have finally ro^iched 
the noisiest atmosphere they 
could. The students who were 
here last summer know what I 
mean. Gorman house was u.sed 
for the first summer session. 
Evidently there was not cnougii 
noise, so for the iC;ond se.,sioii 
we were moved to Brett House, 
where we could be entertained 
by the bulldozer and construc- 
tion noises of the new Dining 

Well the administration had a 
meeting and decided that ihe 
best place for 1965 su;nn:er 
school would be the Southwest 
Complex, l^ut then they lound 
out that the work day doesn't 
start until 7 00 a.m. and it .ends 
at 5:00 p.m. 

The orchard, on the other 
hand, provides continuous noise 
from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Also 
the arrangement of the four 
dorms provides the best possible 
echo, especially for firecrackers. 
The carpets for the hallways 
are not to squash noise. They are 
to provide the janitors a place 
under which they may sweep the

Goodell Memorial Library 
Houses 300,000 Volumes 

IIJ • ■ 

^ .„JK'^' 

By Linda Paul 
"A library is a student at one 
end of a bookshelf and the great 
minds of the vxrrld at the oth- 
er." Horace E. Thorner 
The word "library" on the U- 
Mass campus refers to seven- 
storied Goodell Library — better 
known as "the Libe" — and some- 
times to 19 departmental and 
laboratory libraries scattered in 
all major buildings. 

The University's mammoth li- 
brary facilities include a collec- 
tion exceeding 300,000 volumes 
and 2,000 periodical journals re- 
ceived regularly-covering every 
academic discipline from litera- 
ry to scientific. 

Aside from its vast collec- 
tions, Goodell is exceptional ar- 
chitecturally. Through the front 
columned entrance one arrives 
on the fifth level, where Circu- 
lation and reference desks, Peri- 
odical Room, reader's guide, 
card catalog and several study 
areas are located. One flight 
down are the Deserve Desk, 
Smoking Room, Microfilm 
Room, copying services and 
largest study area. 

Seating capacity is provided 
for 1,350 students and most 
students make use of "the Libe" 
at least once a week. During 
exam periods not a free seat 
can be found. Monday through 
Thursday from 8 a.m. to mid- 
night the library is open, but 
on Friday and Saturday nights 
the closing hour is 10 p.m. On 
Sunday and holidays opening 
hour is 2 p.m. 

A student's key to the collec- 
tion is a small item — his stu- 
dent I.D. Finding a book isn't 
difficult for the card catalog 
lists all books in the main libra- 
ry and its branches. If a prob- 
lem arises, one need only ask a 
member of the qualified staff 
at the Reserve Desk for assist- 
ance. Students don't have to 
search the stacks for by filling 
out a call slip provided near the 
catalog and. submitting it to the 
Circulation Desk, the book will 
be gained. As many as five 
books may be borrowed for as 
long as two weeks. 

Almost every student during 
his years at the University will 
have a course which requires 
use of the library's Reserve 
Desk. Books, magazine articles, 
documents and artists' reprints 
are placed here by faculty who 
have assigned specific readings. 
If a student wishes the use of 
a conying service, this service is 
offered for a minimal charge on 
the fourth level. 

To quote noted Williston 
Academy Librarian Horace E. 
Thorner on the purpose of a li- 

"Dreams are a library's heart 
and its blood and its muscle. 

a man thinks in a library, he stud- 
ies the dreams of scientists. 
When a man looks in a library, 
he sees the dreams of artists. 
When a man thinks in a library, 
he studies the dreams of scient- 
ists. When a man looks in* a li- 
brary, he sees the dream of art- 
ists. When a man looks in a li- 
brary he hears the drea/ms of 
musicians. When a man reads in 
a library, he lives the dreams of 
writers. When a man worships 
in a library, he revers the dream 
of Ood." 

It seems evident that the 
University's library facilities 
make these opportunities avail- 
able to students.

By 1970, the University plans 
to boast of a million volume li- 
brary collection. A new build- 
ing for graduate students and 
research will be added to cam- 
pus, and Goodell will remain 
for "intensive use in undergrad- 
uate courses." With regard to 
Thorner's quotation, library of- 
ficials believe the present libra- 
ry is "not too small if one book 
brings out in you your very 
best. Nor with a million vol- 
umes will it be large enough if 
you do not bring to it the capa- 
city to dream." 

'Yes, a library is a dream. It 
is a doorway to Valhallla. To live 
ivith heroes, you have only to go 
in and follow them."

''Swing Shift'' Program 
Hectic But Rewarding 

by Beth Grindrod 

Freshman impressions of the 
"swing shift" program are not 
as varied as might be expected. 
Commenting on the immediate 
transition from high school to 
college, the average freshman 
agrees that although it is diffi- 
cult, the transition is not as dif- 
ficult as he expected. 

Paula Joyal, special freshman 
and intended Elementary Edu- 
cation major, says, "All you are 
told by guidance directors and 
helpful teachers is that college 
is very different, but actually 
the transition isn't that over- 
whelming. There's so much 
freedom . . . teachers don't prod 
you and it's your responsibility 
to keep up in the class." 

Most freshmen agree that the 
intensity of college courses is 
staggering, l^ndoubtedly this is 
because of the concentration of 
the summer program. Strict 
self-discipline and personal ap- 
plication are required to over- 
come the temptations of sum- 

Pat Bobba, also a special 
freshman and English major, 
says, "Summer school is an aw- 
ful lot of work, not extremely 
difficult . . . more time consum- 
ing than difficult." 

In general college life is what 
the freshman expected. Al- 
though he is slightly disturbed 
at missing a summer vacation, 
he considers himself fortunate 
to be attending UMass. Maureen 

Burke, special freshman and 
French major, says, "My high 
school graduation seemed like 
an anticlimax and would have 
meant more if I hadn't been at- 
tending summer school at the 

The major complaints of the 
special freshmen are the exca-

Lenox Quartet To 
Appear In Concert 

The Lenox Quartet, a young 
group called "one of the finest 
quartets this country has yet 
produced" by the New York

next Tuesday, July 20, at the 

The concert is scheluded for 
7:30 p.m. in Mahar Auditorium. 
Ticlcets are available through the 
UMass Student Union. They will 
also be sold at the door. 

Next Tuesday's concert is one 
of three to be givcii by the out- 
standing string quartet this sum- 
mer at UMass. The group will 
also perform on August 3 and 
August 10. The Lenox Quartet 
appearances are part of the Uni- 
versity's 1965 Summer Fine Arts 

PETER MARSH, Theodora 
Mantz, Paul Hersch, and Donald 
McCall make up the Lenox 
Quartet. The group was formed 
in Lenox, where the members 
were for four years on the facul- 
ty of the Berkshire Music Cen- 
ter — Tanglewood. 

Since first forming, the group 
has forged a name through con- 
certs from coast to coast — at 
New York's Town Hall, at the 
San Francisco Museum of Art, at 
the Aspen Music Festival in Co- 
lorado, and in Chicago, Washing-

The Fantasticks 


by David Moore 
Sell-out and standing room 
audiences at the Bartlett stage 
opening of "The Fantastics" 
Friday and Saturday nights 
found it "nice to remember that 
day in September — ^and follow." 
They "followed" Friday night to 
an extent that is rare for after- 
work theater-goers but well de- 
served by the University Thea- 
ter's 1965 Summer Repertory 
Company for an exciting first 

Much has been written about 
the story behind this celebrated 
off-Broadway musical comedy. 
But "The Fantasticks" must be 
seen to be fully appreciated. The 
youthftdly innocent romance be- 
tween The Boy (Ken Bordner), 
worldly wise and educated in his 
20th year, and the Girl (Marcie 
Ross), unmanageably sophistica- 
ted in her 16th, is genuinely de- 
lightful and wonderfully fresh. 
For parents, "The Fantasticks" 
is a tonic of remembrance. Such 
tunes as "Never Say No" and 
"Plant a Raddish, Get a Rad- 
dish" hit home with a comic wis- 
dom that "hearts should remem- 
ber' and the mind's eye relive. 
The catchy melodies of "You are 
love," "It's Nice to Remember" 
and "They were you" will prob- 
ably find their place beside the 
"old favorites" for most of the 
summer in the UMass area. 

An Italian opera goer once 
remarked that although Ameri- 
can actors couldn't sing, "they 
got up there and did it anyway." 
In large measure this comment 
characterizes the University re- 
pertory performance Friday eve- 
ning. Only on rare occasions did 
Ken Bordner (The Boy) come 
through and actually carry a 
tune in his lead songs. But Ken's 

vocal inadequacies are perhaps 
compensated for by the dynamic 
and expressive force he gives to 
both song and acting. Less irri- 
tating are the voice failings of 
the Narrator (Francois-Regis) 
and the Fathers (Bill Oransky 
and James Stockman) because 
of the characters they play. Mar- 
cie Ross (The Girl) comes clos- 
est to having a controlled voice 
in the production. 

Harry Mahnken has done a 
good job staging "The Fantas- 
ticks." The play goes smoothly 
throughout despite the innumer- 
able possibilities for difficulty on 
a somewhat cluttered stage. The 
drummer is a little distracting 
and noticeably out of place in 
back of the action, however. His 
formal atth^ and professional 
pweoccupation with the rudi- 
ments of rhythm and sheet read- 
ing do not fit with the "simple 
platform" stage. 

Stage movements and block- 
ing techniques were first-rate, 
the company being well at ease 
with a demanding set. Charac- 
terizations were colorfully con- 
vincing and well sustained 
throughout the play. 

Brooks Atkinson of the New 
York Times has said that per- 
haps two acts of "The Fantas- 
ticks" are one act too much. 
There is some truth to this ob- 
servation especially for the 
University Theater performance. 
The delight and comedy of the 
first act is reversed abruptly in 
the second. The world-disillu- 
sionment theme, although force- 
fully done by the Company, is 
a little trite and unoriginal in 
its own right. Songs lose the 
flavor they had in the first act 
and are generally too long and 
somber for the company to vo-

The "Voyages," a different 
breed of folk singing group, will 
appear in concert next Wednes- 
day, July 21, at the University. 

Baritone John Langstaff. ac- 
tress-singer Robin Roberts Ho- 
ward, and instrumentalist Happy 
Ttaum will present their un-

UMass as part of the Univer- 
sity's 1965 Summer Fine Arts 
Festival. Tickets are on sale at 
the Student Union and will also 
be sold at the door. 

The "Voyages" take their 
name from the title of Hart 
Oane's famed poem, which is 
included in the trio's repertoire. 

At Wednesday's UMass con-

a program of poetry and folk 

Poems included range from 
9th century Irish through Donne,

"A Black Day At OSV 

In voting to retain their in- 
famous gag rule, the majority of 
the board of trustees of Ohio 
State University has flouted pub- 
lic opinion, defied the faculty and 
the students and ignored the uni- 
versity's president. 

The five members who voted 
to keep th^ 15-year-old rule can 
be held responsible for the con- 
tinuation of the poor name OSU 
has in the academic community 
of the nation. 

They can also be held respon- 
sible for the expected resigna- 
tions of a number of respected 
faculty members who threatened 
to quit if the rule went un- 

And any student demonstra- 
tions protesting the decision can 
be charged also to the bullheaded 
backwardness of the five who 
disregarded the recommenda- 
tions of the professional educa- 
tors they hired. 

President Novice G. Fawcet, 
following the recommendations 
of a faculty committee, urged 
the trustees to eliminate his 
power to veto speakers he felt 
were subversive. 

Since 1951 an OSU president 
has been empowered to bar from 
the campus any guest speaker he 
judged to be subversive, aUied to 
subversive purposes or whose 
views he felts to be just not in 
the best interests of the scliool. 
In the '50's Ohio State was one 
of only eight universities in 
America using a gag rule. 

Fawcett wisely advised tlie 
trustees that "so long as federui 
and state governments permit 
people who are classed as sub- 
versives ... to move about this 
country freely, it seems to n.v 
that we set ourselves up as beiji:^ 
over and above the law when \.i

er charged that changing the gag 
rule would somehow be a repu- 
diation of U.S. policy in Viet 
Nam, Cuba and other Commu- 
nist areas. What does the sena- 
tor think this nation is fighting 
for if not freedom — including 
freedom of speech? 

According to Fawcett, 757c of 
the students favored changing 
the rule. But the five trustees 
who voted against the change ap- 
parently believe most of Ohio 
State's students are not capable 
of making responsible judgments. 
And apparently these five trus- 
tees feel the faculty judgment is 
also wrong. 

One of the five, Carlton S. Dar- 
gusch of Columbus, is a dis- 
barred attorney presently ap- 

pealing his disbarment. His par- 
ticipation in thfe proceedings at 
all was in questionable taste, con- 
sidering his circumstances. 

The others who unfortunately 
voted with Bricker and Dar- 
gusch were John G. Ketterer of 
Canton, Mervin B. France of 
Cleveland and Frederick E. 
Jones of Columbus. 

The Plain Dealer would like to 
say a word of praise for the three 
trustees who voted to change the 
rule. They were Stanley C. Allyn 
of Dayton, Jacob E. Davis of Cin- 
cinnati, and Board Chairman 
Alan B. Loop of Toledo.

Last week, the sport's minded 
students at UMass were shocked 
to hear that Jerry Whelchel, 
the outstanding Redmen quar- 
terback of the past three years 
and Bulgar Lowe winner, had 
been cut from the Montreal 
Alouettes of the Canadian Foot- 
ball league, after only two days 
of practice. What many people 
do not realize is the circum- 
stances which caused this to 

A month ago Whelchel was 
involved in a fire mishap. Whel- 
chel, who had been a volunteer 
fireman for many years, saved 
a fellow fireman's life while 
fighting a house fire in his 
home town of Cochituate. The 
fireman had been felled by 
heavy smoke and lay uncon- 

scious in the home, enveloped by 
flames. Whelchel grabbed a 
blanket, ran into the house and 
carried out the unconscious 
firefighter. While saving the 
man's life, Whelchel sustained 
multiple burns on his face and 
arms and spent the next five 
days convalescing in a hospital. 
Once out of the hospital, the 
doctor ordered Jerry to do as 
little physical activity as possi- 

As luck would have it, Jerry 
had to report to the Montreal 
camp in just four short weeks. 
Finally he obtained the permis- 
sion of the doctor to work out, 
but he had only a week and a 
half to prepare himself to play 
professional football. However, 
Jerry was not to give up, and 

Jerry Whelchel is seen here in his prime as the star Redman 

tried to compete with this tre- 
mendous disadvantage. On top 
of all this, Whelchel had to 
beat out two proven profession- 
al quarterbacks to gain a posi- 
tion on the team. After two 
days it became obvious that Jer- 
ry could not keep up and Mon- 
treal felt obligated to drop him 
so that he might try out for 
some other team. As it stamds 
now, Jerry is considering two 
football offers from the Ameri- 
can football league and the Con- 
tinental league. 

Troll To Use 
Turf Funds 

The Massachusetts Turf and 
Lawn Grass Council has con- 
tributed $500 to further turf re- 
search at the University of 
Massachusetts, it was announced 
last week. 

Research funds given UMass 
by the turf council will be ad- 
ministered by Dr. Joseph Troll of 
the University's plant and soil 
science department. Dr. Troll is 
also chairman of the Council's 
advisory board. 

Founded in 1958, the Massa- 
chusetts Turf and Lawn Grass 
Council is a non-profit organiza- 
tion made up of golf course su- 
perintendents, landscapers, de- 
velopers, and homeowners inter- 
ested in fine turf culture. 

The Council holds three to 
four meetings each year, pub- 
lishes a bi-monthly magazine, 
and is one of the sponsors of the 
annual Fine Turf Conference at 
UMass each spring. 

Last year the growing organ- 
ization expanded its activities by 
installing an information display, 
staffed by turf culture experts, 
at the Eastern States Exposition. 

The group hopes to extend its 
programs throughout the Com- 

Professional turfmen or home- 
owners interested in joining

Brooke Upholds 
Legality of Ballot 

The legality of the secret bal- 
lot decision by the UMass trus- 
tees in their Medical School vote 
has been affirmed by Atty. Gen. 
Edward Brooke. Governor Volpe 
requested Brooke's ruling after 
being prompted by the Citizens 
Committee on the Medical 
School Site in Amherst. 

According to Brooke, the 
commonwealth's "open meeting 
law" only obligates the trus- 
tees to announce the result of 
their vote, State boards and 
agenices are not held to the 
other requirements of the law 
under an apparent desire to pro- 
tect such officials from having 
their votes influenced by pub- 
lic or private pressure. 

Governor Volpe, an ex officio 
member of the board, has indi- 
cated that he would not attend 
a future meeting of the trus- 
tees, even if they voted to re- 
consider their previous decision. 

BARTLEY (D-Holyoke) a Uni- 
versity alumnus, urged in an 
open letter to Volpe that he 
"stop the growing rift between 
the trustees and faculty. 

In his letter to Volpe, Rep. 
Bartley congratulated the gov- 
ernor for seeking the opinion 
from Brooke, but he was "as- 

tounded" at the reasons Volpe 
gave for not attending the trus- 
tee meeting. Volpe has said sev- 
eral times he felt that his pres- 
ence at the meeting would tend 
to place pressures and render 
a political aspect to the decision 
on selecting a medical school 

"I urge you not to attend as 
the Republican political leader, 
but to attend the trustees meet- 
ing as the chief executive offi- 
cer of the commonwealth and 
as an ex officio member of the 
trustee board," Bartley wrote. 

"This proposed medical school 
will cost Massachusetts taxpay- 
ers about $25 million. As chief 
executive responsible for the 
appropriation of this sum, I feel 
this alone is enough reason for 
you to attend this meeting."

these trustees, to recommend 
that the board of trustees: 

"1. Vote by open ballot. 

"2. Explain their decision in

New Med Angl 

by Peter Hendrickson 

And yet another angle ap- 
pears in the fight to put the 
Med School in Amherst. This 
time it's a $20 million graduate 
research center which may 
turn into a hot item when U- 
Mass deans confront the trus- 
tees July 28. 

The research center is to be 
started next spring on a $3.1 
million grant from the U.S. Of- 
fice of Education to "increase 
the supply of highly qualified 
personnel critically needed by 
the community, industry, gov- 
ernment, research and teach- 
ing," according to Graduate 
School Dean Dr. Edward E. 

According to informed 
sources it is conceivable that 
the research center would be a 
factor in favor of Amherst as a 
Med School site. 

To keep the press up to date 
on the Med School issue a press 
conference is in progress this 
morning and this afternoon at 
the Lord Jeffery Inn. 

fessor of psychology at UMass, 
has invited news media from all

The Citizens Committee on 
the Medical School Site in Am- 
herst has set up the meeting 
with the help of the Amherst 
Chamber of Commerce. Cham- 
ber President Michael deSher- 
binin informed the Collegian 
that a hitherto unpublicized re- 
port by Med School Dean La- 
mar Soutter will be presented 
to the press. 

Amherst Record Publiser de 
Sherbinin explained that the 
document was presented to the 
trustees in December for their 
consideration. After the propos- 
al was submitted the trustees 
hired Management Consultants 
Booz, Allen and Hamilton 
(BAH) to more thoroughly re- 
search the site selection. 

IN JUNE they voted to locate 
in Worcester, the fourth choice 
of BAH with first choice Am- 
herst, losing in the 12-10 vote 
now bitterly contested by emi- 
nent scholars, medical men and 
Western Mass. municipal or- 

Soutter's proposal highlighted 
the following points: 
• The most important consid- 
erations in the location of a 
school are academic ones. He 

noted that close ties with the 
mother university are of ut- 
most importance, and quoted a 
number of Med School deans 
who advocated locating close to 
the mother campus. 

• Students could go, a few at 
a time, for a month's rotation 
to hospitals in both Springfield 
and Worcester, where all of the 
best of the local men are anx- 
ious to teach for us. This does 
not mean a split campus; there 
would be only one campus. 

• The simplest and best way 
of having a first-rate hospital 
for the core of our teaching is 
to build one on the campus, 
physically connected with the 
Medical School. The campus is 
the only site where we will get 
the mixture of ward and pri- 
vate patients, largely on a re- 
ferral basis, that are needed for 

• Amherst is a town of 12,000 
people with 1,500,000 living 
within 50 miles of it. There 
would be no shortage of pa- 

• The graduate schools would 
offer preclinical departments 
that would greatly improve the 
student-faculty ratio, and the

"Imaginary Invalid^^ Tonight 
Follows "Fantastic k'^ Raves 

In an interview on Wednes- 
day, July 21, Cosmo A. Catala- 
no, managing director of the 
University Summer Theatre 
and director of The Imaginary 
Invalid, discussed Moliere's play. 

"When we open Thursday 
night at 8:30, the University 
community will witness a spec- 
tacular event. I refer specifical- 
ly to the costumes and settings 
which Dale Amlund, our staff 
designer, has created for the 
show. Not only did he and his 
crew construct and build each 
costume for the dozen members 
of the cast, but they also made 
full period wigs. There has been 
no time and effort spared in the 
preparation of this production, 
although most of the cast and 
company are involved in the 
other two productions of the 
Repertory Theatre as well." 

Moliere's comic masterpiece, 
"The Imaginary Invalid," will 
be produced by the University 
Summer Theatre in the Bartlett 
Hall Theatre. Other perform- 
ances are on July 24 and 30, 

August 6, 11, 13 and 21. For 
tickets call 545-2006. 

Queens College graduate Bill 
Oransky (Argan) will have the 
central role of the hypochondri- 
ac who enjoys letting quacks 
punish his body and his pocket- 
book in this first and most fam- 
ous of all the plays that have 
been imitating it by spoofing 
the medical profession down 
the ages— from Bernard Shaw's 
"The Doctor's Dilemma" thru 
all the lampoons on psychoanal- 
ysis of the 1950's and 1960's. 

"The Imaginary Invalid" was 
the last of the 27 immortal 

comedies by Moliere, France's 
greatest comic writer. It was 
first produced in Paris in 1673 
just a week before Moliere's 
death. The ingenious author-ac- 
tor was, as usual, playing the 
leading part in his comedy at 
its fourth performance when he 
was suddenly stricken. Whether 
in this emergency he stuck by 
the advice he offers in the play, 
to stay out of the hands of 
doctors at all times, or whether 
at the end he had the aid of 
the profession he satirized in 
the play, is now unknown.

The celebrated Lenox String Quartet was enthusiastically re- 
ceived by a packed Mahar Auditorium audience last night in the 
first of three Fine Arts Festival concerts to be given tliis sum- 
mer. The Quartet performed Mozart's Quartet in D Major, 
Beethoven's Quartet in C, Op. 59, No. 8, and the Quatret No. 4 
1928) by Bartoi(. The crowd was barely able to Iteep from ap- 
plauding after an artistically done Bartok pizzicato movement. 
It is unfortunate that late arrivals were allowed to enter the 
hall between movements of the Quartet's first piece. Such dis- 
respectful practices seem to be well embedded in UMass tradi- 
tion, and are not likely to draw talented artists to the Univer- 
sity campus in the future if continued. 

The audience did make up for previous rudeness, however, by 
warmly inviting the Quartet to play a Mozart encore. 
The Lenox String Quartet, who make their home at Orinnell 
College, Orinnell, Iowa, when not on tour, will revisit the UMass 
campus on Aug. 3 and 10. Since the artistry of this group can 
be heard for one fifth the cost required in New York, no one 
should miss the repeat performances.

The festival at Newport is held 
in an open field with the fine 
sounds propelled by the chill 
ocean breezes that whip through 
the crowd. 

Blankets and long trousers are 
acceptable dress. No liquor may 
be carried into the concerts but 
there is a beer concession. 

The seats stretch far away 
from the performers but the 
sound system is so powerful that 
the slightest belch carries to the 
most distant comer of the field. 

Tickets are avsulable at a mu- 
sic store in Newport and at the 
gate but some concerts sell-out 

in advance, and only he higher- 
priced seats are left. 

The drive from Amherst takes 
about two and a half hours but 
parking is available at a buck a

Senior Advice to Freshmen: 
Lonely? Meet Your Campus 

Editor'8 Note: Thia is the fifth in a aeries of apeecial editoriala written to freahnum from (rraduat- 
ing seniors. The authx)rs ail graduated with high cumulative a/verages and voere engaged in a variety

His head swimming with ad- 
vice, the freshman arrives at the 
University of Massachusetts. 

Mother and Father have told 
him to study hard, spend his 
money wisely, change his sheets 
regularly, never borrow or lend 
anything and keep his door 

him his room number, the size 
of the curtains he'll need, the 
approximate cost of books per 
semester and the basic gradua- 
tion requirements for his major. 

But the chances are very 
great that no one has told him 
what a lonely place the Univer- 
sity can be, despite its over 10,- 
000 population, and that the 
University can continue to be a 
very lonely place for him — un- 
less he does something about it. 

make it difficult for him to feel 
at home. He will have to wear a 
silly-looking beanie. When he 
asks directions, he will probobly 
be sent to the fifth floor of a 
four-story building or directed 
to the elevator in a building that 
doesn't have one. 

HE WILL often feel like the 
New York tourist who discovers 
that a cabby has driven him 12 
miles to a destination only two 
miles away. 

This feeling, however, can end 
during the first few days of cla- 
ses — if the freshman makes an 
effort to know his campus and 
the people with whom he will 
be living, learning and interact- 
ing during his brief, four-year 
stay at UMass. 

NO DOUBT, he will eventual- 
ly learn that Machmer Hall is 
horse-shoe shaped and divided 
into east and west; that Bart- 
lett is the building with the 
language labs and the rusty 
metal sculpture out front; that 
the side door of the library leads 
not to level one, but to level 
five; and that the cage is next 
to Bartlett and not really an 
animal den.

and that Squaws and Braves are

But this is only a fraction of 
what he should know. 

The University Handbook and 
Spectrum will tell him that his 
school newspaper, the Collegian, 
comes out three times each 
week. His literary and humor 
magazines. Caesura and Yahoo, 
are published three times each 
year. He needs an FM radio to 
listen to his campus radio sta- 
tion. WMUA. 

BUT most important, he must 
realize that these activities, and 

many more, are run by students 
— students like him, who came 
to UMass as lonely freshmen. 
He may be told that he, too, 
can join campus organizatioins, 
fraternities and dormitory and 
class committees, but he should 
also be told that they won't 
come looking for him. 

FINALLY, he should know 
that his student tax money sup- 
ports these activities; that this 
money is administered by stu- 
dents; that students make the 
rules by which these organiza- 
tions are governed. 

The University of Massachu- 
setts is a large community, but 
it needn't be a lonely, imperson- 
al place. To belong takes only a 
little effort and the realization 
that almost everyone else wants 
to belong, too.

Delonga and Walker are two

ment as part of the University's 
Summer Fine Arts Festival. 

An associate piofessor in the 
art department at Mount Hol- 
yoke College. Delonga served as 
head of the Texas Wesleyan Col- 
lege art department for two 
years. Prior to joining the Mount 
Holyoke faculty, he was assistant 
professor in the art department 
at the University of Georgia for 
eight yean. 

by Delonga and 
Bartlett Lobby 

He graduated from the Univer- 
sity of Miami (Fla.) and earned 
his master's degree at the Uni-

Professor Delonga has ex- 
hibited in New York City, Phila- 
delphia, Hartford, at Vassar Col- 
lege, the Univtr'sities of Nebra- 
ska and Missouri and several 
other locations. 

According to art critics, De-

But "The Imaginary Invalid" 
has lived on after Moliere's 
passing as a continuously rich 
and vigorous comedy. In our 
own century, a full-dress Broad- 
way production in 1917 was 
called by a major critic "the 
funniest play of the season." 
When it was presented by the 
Old Vic in London in 1933, the 
London Times declared that it 
"still keeps fully alive its 
knockout fun."

by locating both the Medical 
School and the University hos- 
pital on the campus. 

The committee also presented 
other Amherst arguments to 
muster popular support in hope 
that the trustees will move to 
reconsider at the July 28 meet- 

Among the experts scheduled 
to speak are: Dr. Everett An- 
derson, UM zoology professor; 
Dr. Robert S. Feldman, UM 
psychology professor; Dr. Hen- 
ry N. Uttle, UM biochemistry 
professor; Dr. George Nichols, 
associate dean. Harvard univer-

and Dr. Thomas O. Wilkinson, 
UM sociology professor. 

Also expected to participate 
is Dr. G. P. Berry, dean emeri-

BROOKE . . . 

(Continu,ed from page 1) 
Over half a million people of 
Western Massachusetts are 
looking for your leadership 
over this medical school crisis. 
Please, don't let them down." 

In his opinion, Brooke repeat- 
ed the question sent him last 
Friday by the governor at the 
request of the Citizens Commit- 
tee on the Medical School Site 
in Amherst. He noted the trus- 
tees had met in Amherst June 
11, the public had been allowed 
to attend the meeting and hear 
the discussion and the actual 
vote was by secret ballot, 12-10 
for he Worcester site, "but no 
indication was given to the pub- 
lic as to how each individual 
trustee had voted." 

Brooke cited the provisions of 
the open meeting law. General 
Laws Chapter 30a, Section 11a, 
which requires state agencies to 
hold meetings open to the pub- 
lic unless they vote to go into 
closed session for certain speci- 
fic reasons. The section re- 
quires records be kept and a 
summary made available with 
reasonable promptness after the 

BROOKE SAID there is no 
doubt that the trustees are a 
state board subject to that law, 
and are so referred to in Gen- 
eral Laws Chapter 15, Section 
20, and are responsible for man- 
agement of a state institution. 
He said "Nevertheless, I find no 
provision ... (in the open meet- 
ing law) which would prohibit 
the trustees from choosing to 
proceed by the method of the 
secret ballot. . ." 

He said the trustees "need 
meet only the requirements con- 
tained in that section." He said 
the only reference to the meth- 
od of voting is that requiring 
the "summary of all matters 
voted shall be made available 

with reasonable promptness af- 
ter each meeting; provided, 
however, that votes taken in ex- 
ecutive session may remain se- 
cret so long as their publication 
would tend to defeat the lawful 
purposes of the executive ses- 
sion, but no longer." 

Brooke said the trustees were 
obliged to announce and did an- 
nounce the choice of Worcester. 
He ruled, "But nothing appears 
in the law which would obligate 
each individual trustee to reveal 
how he voted, or which would 
require the board's records to 
contain same, and the board 
could lawfully exercise discre- 
tion to withhold such informa- 

said the intent of the General 
Court against compelling pro- 
duction of that information is 
"even more apparent by an ex- 
amination of the municipal 
equivalent of the "open meet- 
ing law, . . . practically a dupli- 
cate of the state law, tailored to 
meet local circumstances." 

Brooke pointed out that In 
March of 1964, the general 
court amended the open meet- 
ing law applying to cities and 
towns to provide "no secret or 
written ballot shall be used." He 
continued to note that "a simi- 
lar prohibition was not placed 
in the state 'open meeting law.' 
Since it is clear that the Gen- 
eral Court is aware of the prob- 
lem, having dealt with it on the 
municipal level so recently, the 
fact that secret ballots have 
never expressly been prohibited 
by C. 30a, S. 11a, must be con- 
sidered an indication that the 
Legislature does not at this 
time desire to bind state boards 
in such a fashion. . ." 

At no point in the formal 
opinion did the attorney general 
state that the trustees of the 
university may not make their 
decision by open roll call voting.

UMass Will Offer 
Two New Ph. D's 

The department of agricultural 
engineering at the University 
will offer a course of study lead- 
ing to the doctor of philosophy 
degree beginning this tail, Dean 
Edward C. Moore of the UMass 
Graduate School announced to- 

With its new program, the 
University becomes the first in- 
stitution in New England and 
the 16th in the nation to offer a 
Ph.D. in agricultural engineering. 

The new Ph.D. offering brings 
to 29 the number of doctoral pro- 
grams conducted by the Univer- 

Dr. Flobert Kleis, head of the 
agricultural engineering depart- 
ment at UMass, cited three ma- 
jor reasons for instituting the 
new program: 

• The large and growing need 
for Ph.D.'s, p£U-ticularly in the 
food industries of Massachusetts; 

• The number of able young 
engineers in the New England 
area who desire Ph.D. study; and 

• The ability to provide in- 
creased technical service to the

Dr. Kleis also said the program 
wil help the department's facul- 
ty by providing a challenge as 
well as assistance from Ph.D. 

Doctoral candidates, apart 
from their woric within the agri- 
cultural engineering department, 
will be expected to take sub- 
stantial advanced courses in re- 
lated fields — mathematics, 
chemistry, food science and tech- 
nology, plant and soil science, 
physics, statistics, public health, 
landscape architecture, and en- 

The new Ph.D. program, said 
Dr. Kleis, will not involve great 
numbers of students, but will be 
strong technically and principally 
oriented to the needs of the New 
England region. 


There will be a Sports 
Night on Wednnesday, July 
28, in the Middlesex Room of 
the Student Union. This will 
be a chance for both men and 
women students to get intra- 
mural leagues in such sports 
as Softball, basketball, and 
bowling organized for the 
Second Summer Session. If 
you are at all interested in 
seeing leagues organized, we 
strongly urge that you attend 
this meeting. Also, try to talk 
to other people interested in 
these sports, and ask them to 
come down or get their names 
on sheets, since the success of 
this program will depend en- 
etirely on student interest. 
Representatives from the 
Dean of Men's Office and the 
Men's Phys Ed Dept. will be 
there, and the Women's Phys 
Ed Dept. also expressed 
favorable interest.

Med School 

Strip Tease? 

story cmd Photos 

The historical tradition of the past fills 
The Lord Jeffeiy Inn in Amherst. But, 
last Thursday the emphasis was on the 
future as representatives from Massachu- 
setts' news media gathered to hear the 
Citizen's Committee present facts and 
views on the choice of the site for the new 
University Medical School, 

The purpose of the conference, ex- 
plained Dr. Albert E. Goss, executive 
chairman of the committee, was to "pre- 
sent and clarify the issues which seem to 
confuse the public and the trustees." 
Divided into a morning and afternoon ses- 
sion, the conference presented the opinions 
of many University faculty members, Dr. 
George Reader, Professor of Medicine at 
Cornell University and Michael deSher- 
binin, editor af the Amherst Record. 

Introducing the agenda, Goss, Professor 
of Psychology at the University, described 
what he considered to be the nature of "the 
choice. ' 

said, was that of a whole, strong university 
on the Amherst campus. This offers, he ex- 
plained, an opportunity for the develop- 
ment of a strong and distinctive educa- 
tional and cultural center. 

THE "RADICAL," VIEW, however, is 
one of a divided, weak university in Am- 
herst, Worcester and Boston. Goss referred 
to this scheme as that of "the strip uni- 
versity". The result of this scheme, Goss 
concluded, would be a stripped university. 
"The process would be a strip-tease." 

Emphasising the consequences of the 
choice, Goss referred to the eventuality of 
a Science Center to accompany the Medical 
School; a center that could be better 
served by the existing faculty and facili- 
ties in Amherst would result in the best 
possible University and Medical School. 

Speaking on the rural vs. urban question, 
Dr. Thomas Wilkinson, Professor of So- 
ciology at the University drew upon his ex- 
tensive study of the population growth and 
distribution of Massachusetts from 1950 to 


"Density is not a reliable measure of ur- 
banization", said Wilkinson. "If it were, 
your most urbanized areas would be those 
of India's farmlands." The true cross-sec- 
tion of patients will not be found in an ur- 
ban area such as Worcester, he stressed. In 
terms of growth, the Worcester area is de- 
creasing while the Amherst, Springfield, 
Greenfield, Holyoke area is steadily in- 
creasing, he concluded. 

big city? 

DR. READER, answering the question 
"Where are the patients?" referred to the 
"fallacy of a need for a big city". Many 
medical schools, he added, are small on 
purpose because it is imperative that "the 
University hospital should be a model 
rather than a big hospital that takes care 

of all." 

"A University Medical School should be 
on the campus so that the university can 
control and develop it," said Dr. Reader. 
Placement on the campus also avoids the 
problem of dealing with the medical 
hierachy that is present in any big city. 
"Some schools never solve the problem 
created between practitioners who want to 
practice and teachers who want to teach." 

Continuing, Dr. Reader posed the diffi- 
culties a student faces on "the long haul to 
becoming a doctor". "The hope is to short- 
en It", said Dr. Reader. This would be done 

byEUen Levine 

at the under-graduate level by combining 
liberal arts and preliminary science courses. 
"This can not be done on a split campus," 
he added. 

The many years of medical school should 
be flexible and intellectually stimulating. 
Only at a university can students obtain 
the atmosphere of interplay between 
clinicians, investigators and medical men. 
"There is very little integration unless the 
medical school is really part of the whole 
university," Dr. Reader concluded. 

Beginning the afternoon session after 
lunch. Dr. Goss discussed the advantages 
of "two instead of three" campuses. Sup- 
porting a third campus in Worcester would 
slow development in Boston and Amherst." 
We must consider the total commitment to 
the University in the health sciences and 
technologies" urged Dr. Goss. 

"Let the citizens of Worcester devote 
their energies to the support and develop- 
ment of institutions already there. It is just 
as reasonable for Worcester to seek aca- 
demic ties with Clark or Holy Cross. If 
Worcester can't work with these schools 
how can it be expected to work with the 
University." asked Goss. "Let the citizens 
of Worcester stop exploiting what is a 
fluke decision" he concluded. 

Speaking on "A Whole Strong Univer- 
sity; Medicine and the rest of a University, 
The rest of a University and Medicine", 
were representatives of the University's 
departments of zoology, chemistry, psy- 
chology and history. 


Dr. Harold Rauch, professor of zoology, 
drew attention to the fact that research 
today "is not Arrowsmith in his lab with 
a microscope." He stressed the importance 
of interplay between medicine and the sup- 
porting research sciences. "A researcher 
needs the facilities that a Medical School 
will bring with it and a Medical School 
needs the contributions of clinicians," he 
added. "The faculty will want to go where 
the action is and we can have that action 
in Amherst," Rauch concluded. 

Professor of biochemistry, Dr. Henry 
Little, likened his science and medicine to 
the process of hybridization. "If you take 
two pure strains of com and marry them, 
you produce a full rigorous hybrid. Medi- 
cine and Biochemistry are two pure strains 
that when married produce a full, vigop- 
ous nucleus," he said. 

Dr. Feldman of the psychology depart- 
ment spoke of the need for psychologists 
who are trained to design .procedures 
with the necessary control and precision to 
measure behavior. "We are limited by the 
absence of medical men and the Medical 
School will be limited by the absence of 
trained psychologists," he added. "There is 
no place except on campus where integra- 
tion can occur unless there is expensive 
duplication and even then you can't predict 
success," he concluded. 

Speaking about the possibility of a Be- 
havioral Sciences Center on the University 
campus, Dr. Louis Price, also of the psy- 
chology department, stressed that the 
Medical School was essential to this pro- 
ject. The project, he explained, "would 
benefit Amherst and the Western Massa- 
chusetts area as well as provide an ex- 
cellent center for research in a field where 
there is a great lack of vital, accurate In- 
(Continued on pofire 2) 

"Governor Volpe should take a stand," said Michael deSher- 
binln, editor of the Amherst Record. 

Tomorrow . . . 

the Trustees meet at the Statler Hilton to hear 
the pleas dt the dissatisfied and of the satisfied. 
They may move to reconsider. They may patiently 
listen to both sides of the Med School story and 
hold to their original decision. 

Whatever they do will be cltllclzed by one side 
or the other. Their decision Is not one that will 
quickly fade from the minds of the Commonwealth. 
They are on the firtng line and we can only hope 
that they will rise above the narrow sphere of 
regional politics. 

Your children may be served by the doctors from 
this Med School. Your children may go to this Med 
School. What will the trustees choose, the political 
or the professional path of Medical training?

Dr. Robert Feldman. profe«wr of psychology at the University.

formation". This will only be 
possible, however, "if all neces- 
sary departments are present 
and active on campus," he con- 

congruous that a humanist be 
concerned with a medical 
school," said Professor Quint of 
the history department, "Medi- 
cine and history do share com- 
mon bonds." Quint explained that 
the University lacks a depart- 
ment of medical and scientific 
history that is in 'every self-re- 
specting institution." The de- 
velopment of such a department 
would benefit and be benefited 
by the Medical School, he con- 

Summing up the days' discus- 
sion, Michael deSherbinin, editor 
of the Amherst Record, spoke of 
the increasing int,erest in the 

Medical School by faculty, citi- 
zens and the public. 


Volpe's role in the controversy, 
deSherbinin said that when vi- 
sited by representatives, Volpe 
stated that he wanted to stay 
clear of the issue, feeling that it 
was a professional and not a 
political issue. 

deSherbinin expressed the 
views of the citizens' committee. 
"We believe that Governor Volpe 
should take a stand. This is a 
political issue that will be an is- 
sue in the next election." 

Tomorrow the Trustees will 
meet to hear appeals on their 
decision to place the Medical 
School in Worcester. Appeals will 
be heard from the Faculty Sen- 
ate, the academic deans, the 
AFL-CIO and possibly repres- 
entatives from Amherst and 

A delegation from Worcester 
is expected to appear to thank 
the trustees for their vote.

"The Rainmaker" 
Premieres Thursday 

"The Rainmaker", the roman- 
tic Broadway comedy hit about 
a Dustbowl Cinderella's learning 
self - confidence from a glib 
tramp, will be presented at the 
University Summer Theatre for 
the first time on July 29 at 8:30. 
Performances are repeated on 
August 5, 7, 14, 18 and 20. Call 
545-2006 for reserved seats. 

Peggy Clarke will be starred 
in the role of a rancher's gawky 
daughter resigned to spinster- 
hood until a roving con-man, to 
be played by Francois - Regis, 
drops by her father's ranch and 
teaches her to believe in herself. 
Others in the cast will be Bill 
Oransky, Michael Hench, William 
Blum, Ken Bordner and Dan 

The setting for the play is in 
a ranch house in the Southwest 
at a time of damaging drought. 
The family of a father and two 
sons not only are worried about 
a lack of rain, but also of suit- 
ors for the daughter of the 
house. The father, (Mike Hench ) , 
and the two brothers (Ken Bord- 
ner and Dan Wier) have tried 
sending Lizzie on visits away 
from home, and to entice an 
eligible but shy deputy-sheriff 
(played by Mr. Blum) to come 
courting, but without avail. 

The answer to both the rain- 
deficiency and the suitor-defici- 
ency seems answered when a 
grandiloquence - spouting rover 
turns up and promises to pro- 
duce a fine rainstorm for a mere 
hundred dollars. 

While this swashbuckler of the 
plains sets about his magical 
effects upon the clouds, he also 
begins to work a magic upon the 

lovelorn Lizzie. He plays the 
wooer with her in a barn and 
teaches her to mix dreams and 
reality in the right proportions. 
Even though he is a faker and 
fails to produce rain for the 
rancher's crops, he does bring 
another kind of rain to the 
daughter's parched heart. Forti- 
fied with his teaching, she knows 
how to win the man who is right 
for her as a husband.

"Imaginary Invalid^^

The "Invalid". Bill Oransky, reveals a startling bit of informa- 
tion to his maid, Lynn Martin, in a scene from Friday evening's 
performance of Mollere's "The Imaginary Invalid." 

Psychiatrist Discusses 
Unrest On Campus 

The unrest exhibited by stu- 
dents and faculties of colleges 
across the country can be at- 
tributed in part to a rebirth of 
a strong ethical consciousness 
in the nation, according to Dr. 
Jerome D. Frank, professor of 
psychiatry at Johns Hopkins 

Those who are rebelling. Dr. 
Frank said in a talk he gave 
last week, are hoping to 
identify with constructive so- 
cial objectives and are mean- 
while unwilling to accept un- 
critically official or establish- 
ment versions of the American 
social order or American for- 
eign policy. 

Dr. Frank made his remarks 
in a lecture at the New York 
Society for Ethical Culture. 

"The major threats to man " 
he said, "no longer lie in his 

Lost and Found 

FOUND: A poncho in the Ladies' 
dies' Room of Hasbrouck. If 
contact 253-7937 during the af- 

environment but in himself. 
Thus ethical conduct assumes 
a survival value that it never 
had before." 

"Our control of the physical 
world," Dr. Frank said, "is cre- 
ating severe threats to the sense 
of security and personal signi- 
ficance. These threats come 
from at least three closely re- 
lated sources: the rapidity of 
change itself, the weakening of 
ties within groups and the in- 
tensification of conflict between 

Dr. Frank declared that be- 
cause of the weakening of ties 
to one's own group and the 
"concomitant sense of personal 
isolation, the highest value for 
an individual becomes satisfac- 
tion of his personal needs, re- 
gardless of its effect on his fel- 
low citizens."

Moliere's seventeenth-century 
spoof on the medical profession 
might have succumbed to va- 
pidity Saturday night were it 
not for a vitalizing dose of 
characterization, staging and 
costume design by the Univer- 
sity Theater Repertory Compa- 

The "Imaginary Invalid" is 
the kind of farce that modern 
theater goers find hard to swal- 
low. Exaggerated actions and 
put-on situations become enter- 
taining only to the extent that 
actors are perfectly serious 
about the absurd parts they 
play. In this regard, the second 
Arts Festival production of the 
1965 summer theater company 
was not only a technical suc- 
cess but a chuckling good time 
for the audience as well. 

Bill Oransky could not have 
been more convincing as Mon- 
sieur Argan, the cronic imagin- 
ary invalid. Those who attend- 
ed University Theater's first 
production, "The Fantasticks," 
will remember Bill's fine per- 
formance as the girl's father. 
The cranky, effeminate whine 
with which he bewails a multi- 
tude of ailments is beautifully 
in character and well sustained 
throughout the play. The initial 
doctor-chasing routine behind 
an artistically styled transpar- 
ent stage curtain is especially 
priceless, as are the bell-ringing 
bed antics later in the scene. 

Lynn Martin, as Toinette, 
Monsieur Argan's roustabout 
maid, taxes her master's dying 
constitution to the limit. Lynn 
does a highly amusing job as 
the high-strung contriver and 
mastermind of the Argan house- 
hold. Both she and Bill Oransky 
are to be congratulated for the 

lasting stamina with which they 
execute demanding roles. It is 
amazing that their voices held 
out to the end as they did. 

Moliere has added a novel 
twist to this familiar theme by 
making the father's wish to 
have a doctor in the family a 
romantic sub-plot within the 
main medical profession satire. 
Carolyn Mellini plays the age 
old part of the daughter who 
pines for the love of her secret 
Romeo as her father makes 
plans for a match of his own 

Carolyn's movements are typ- 
ically melodramatic but not 
overly so. 

Beline, Argan's purse-hungry 
wife, is played by Ruth Eller. 
Ruth does not take optimum 
advantage of the potentials of 
her role, but does a satisfacto- 
ry job nonetheless. Cleante 
(William Blum) is better in his 
disguised performance as the 
substitute music teacher than 
as an in-the-flesh lover. 

Francois-Regis, also seen in 
"The Fantasticks," and Dan 
Weir are excellently cast as 
Monsieur Diafoirus, a doctor, 
and his idiot son Thomas, re- 
s' ectively. Dan characterizes 
the betrothed, father-prompted 
groom with comic appeal that 
can only be described as 

•great." Francois-Regis exe- 
cutes his boisterous portrayal 
of the father with voice and ac- 
tions that are professionally vil- 

Ken Bordner as the brother 
01 Argan, makes tolerable one 
of the few poorly written and 
inadequately staged parts of 
the play with excellent facial 
expressions. Tom Kerrigan, as 
Monsieur Purgcn, another doc- 
tor, is the usual master of his 
comic role. It almost seems as 
if Tom were born in full cos- 
tume and with script. He is a 
1 ure joy to watch. 

REFLECT the professional tal- 
ents of Dale Amlund, who has 
played no small part in the suc- 
cess of University productions. 
Staging was well directed by 
Cosmo A. Catalano, also of the 
University faculty. 

The Saturday night perform- 
ance was not without noticeable 
line-dropping, but may other- 
wise be classed as a definite 
success. It might also be noted 
that a St cky-night audience 
was treated to the sale of two- 
swallow, fifteen-cent refresh- 
ment during intermission in a 
seeming attempt to bring

'There is more at 
stake than the sight 
of the medical school. 
The citizens of Mas- 
sachusetts must have 
faith in the processes 
of government . . ." 

story amd p/iotos 
by David Oitelson 

The auiswer to the question 
of whether or not the Board of 
Trustees of the University will 
reconsider their June 11 decis- 
ion locating the proposed U- 
Mass medical school in Worces- 
ter was postponed for at least 
one week, as the Board yester- 
day chose to recess without 
reaching a final verdict. 

Before adjourning, the Board 
listened to more than five hours 
of evidence for and against the 
Worcester site from a distin- 
guished collection of legislators, 
educators, medical administra- 
tors and local government offi- 

The meeting, held at the Stat- 
ler-Hilton Hotel dn Boston, was 
called to order shortly after 10 
a.m. by Chairman Frank L. 
Boyden, who recognized a dele- 
gation of state legislators, head- 
ed by former Speaker John F. 

son said, legislators of both po- 
litical parties have been work- 
ing to see that the University 
becomes a great institution of 
learning, and that much prog- 
ress has been made toward ac- 
complishing this end. 

"Now," he continued, "all 
this is threatened seriously by 
the decision to place the medi- 
cal school in Worcester. It 
seems clear that some of the 
twelve trustees who voted for 
the Worcester site were fearful 
of legislative refusal to grant 
funds to a medical school not in 
one of the major municipal sec- 
tions of the state." 

This decision, Thompson said, 
has been unanimously deplored 
by the University Faculty Sen- 
ate and administrative deans. 
The result of this situation will 
be an increased difficulty in ob- 
taining the highest quality ad- 
ministrators and teachers, he 

ARE DOING," Thompson plead- 
ed. "End this war with the aca- 
demic and medical community. 
Close this split with your ad- 
ministrators and faculty. You 
must act to keep your good 
teachers. The course of achieve- 
ment Is clear." 

Also among those legislators 
In favor of reconsideration were 
Representatives Grlmaldl, Mc- 
Guane, Blsbee, Wojtkowskl, 
Barrus, Coffey, Cauley, McGinn, 
Clark and Bartley. 

At the conclusion of the legis- 
lators' remarks, members of the 
delegation from Worcester rose 
to thank the trustees for their 
decision, and to express their

confidence that the choice was 
a wise one. 

In the words of City Manager 
Francis J. McGrath, "We have 
not come here to argue our case 
or engage in debate." 

"Our purpose," he said, "is 
simply to welcome the new 
medical school to the city of 

SENTATFVES that had spoken 
earlier, McGrath stated that 
there were equally as many 
legislators willing to speak in 
favor of the trustees' decision, 
but that it was his wish to keep 
the Issue free from politics. 

Dr. John Carmondy, a noted 
Worcester physician, said that 
,as a medical man, he felt Wor- 
cester to be "a fine choice." 

Students of medicine must be 
taught by good medical men, 
stated Carmondy, and went on 
that Worcester has a solid nu- 
cleus of competent doctors and 
administrators to do the job. 

ICAL SCHOOL overnight," he 
concluded. "Our city has five 
hospitals and several outstand- 
ing libraries at the school's dis- 

"We have no difficulty bring- 
ing In top-rate faculty to exist- 
ing Institutions," stated Dr. 
Hudson Hotoland. "The atmos- 
phere In Worcester Is that of a 
lively Intellectual center." 

Daniel Rich, director of the 
Worcester Art Museum, spoke 
on the cultural opportunities 
within the city: "In addition to 
its fine Art Museum, Worcester 
Is the home of the oldest Music 
Festival In the United States. 
We have our own symphony or- 
chestra. Our Museum of Science 

is widely acclaimed. In short, 
Worcester has a cultural envi- 
ronment that can attract people 
and keep them there." 

Worcester Chamber of Com- 
mence President John Adams, 
Jr., noted the large amount of 
interrelation between the local 
business and academic commu- 
nities. "The Chamber will do 
everything in Ics power to make 
the medical school one of the 
finest in the country," he stat- 

H. PLUMLEY, a past presi- 
dent of the U. S. Chamber of 
Commerce, concluded the dele- 
gation's remarks. "There is 
more at stake than just the site 
of the medical school," he re- 
marked, and went on to say 
that the citizens of Massachu- 
setts must have faith in the 
processes of government, in 
those who represent them, and 
in their decisions. 

Speaking for the Council of 
Academic Deans, Edwin C. 
Moore, dean of the Graduate 

Prof. Thomas Wilkinson 
pointed out to the trustees 
that the population around 
Amherst supports the locar 
tloii of the medical school on 
the Univeratty oampos. 

School, stated that It is not nec- 
essary for a large urban pop- 
ulation to be accessible to a 
medical school. Rather, the pri- 
mary criteria should be those 
such as "where can the best ed- 
ucational facilities be provided, 
not where the best hospital can 
be located," he asserted. 

"Now, it is an axiom of all 
educational theory that the first 
and essential requirement for 
any education of any kind is an 
excellent faculty," he continued. 
"What attracts a superior 
medical faculty is, baldly and 
simply, a superior educational 

field, and a medical degree is 
no exception, In isolation from 
other graduate programs," said 
Moore. "Medical students need 
to be on a campus where grad- 
uate work in psychology, sociol- 
ogy, public administration, sta- 
tistics, biochemistry, biomedical 
engineering, is being conducted." 
Such qualifications, the dean 
felt, could be met only by the 
Amherst campus. 

"We, stated I. Moyer Huns- 
berger In his report, "the Aca- 
demic Deans of the University 
of Masschusetts, .'rge you to re- 
consider your recent decision 
concerning the medical school 
in view of the following argu- 

1. "You have advanced no ed- 
ucational reason ... for prefer- 
ring Worcester over the Uni- 
versity campus as a site for the 
medical school. 

2. "No discussion of the rela- 
tive merits of Worcester vs. the 
University campus was permit- 

Dr Samuel Martin

tive microcosm which

lation needs of the

and still do question— the wis- 
dom of using a secret ballot to 
decide so important an educa- 
tional issue. . . 

4. "The Faculty Senate has 
unanimously requested you to 
reconsider. There was not a sin- 
gle dissenting vote. 

5. "All faculty members who 
attended the Senate meeting as 
guests unanimously endorsed 
the action of the Senate. . . 

o. "All nine Academic Deans 
have unanimously asked you to 
reconsider. . . 

7. "If the medical school is 
not located on the campus of its 
parent university, the trustees 
will have taken ar\ action which 
would deliberately delay— by at 
least a decade— the acquisition 
by UMass of . . . the concentra- 
tion of resources needed to

as the location of a medical 
school should be decided by a 
substantial majority." 

decide to reconsider, said Huns- 
berger, they would receive only 
the highest praise from all aca- 
demic circles. 

At this point trustee Hugh 
Thompson interrupted the pro- 
ceedings to say that In his opin- 
ion the Academic Deans had 
done more to damage the repu- 
tation of the University by their 
previous actions and "speaking 
here today" than the Board of 
Trustees decision did to faculty 
recruitment and morale, 

Concluding the remarks of 
the Academic Deans, Mary A. 
Maher of the School of Nurs- 
ing called for a completely inte- 
grated program of medicine on 
the Amherst campus and urged 
the trustees to reconsider their 
decision of June 11. 

On behalf of the Faculty Sen- 
ate, Prof. Thomas Wilkinson of 
the department of sociology 
pointed out that the population 
around Amherst did in fact be- 
fit a medical school: 

"Amherst," he asserted, "far 
from being a rural. Isolated 
community factually Is located 
within a region which offers far 
more population than that 
leemed to be necessary for the 
effective functioning of a medi- 
cal school ... the population to 
which Amherst has dccess Is a 
source for the genuine cross-sec- 
tion required ... the population

BAKN, also speaking for the 
Faculty Senate, stated that 
". . . the future of the health 
sciences in Massachusetts is as- 
sured only if the men and wom- 
en passing through our educa- 
tional institutions are of the 
highest quality and receive only 
the best education we can offer. 
. . . The highest quality medical 
education will only be achieved 
if the medical school is situated 
on the University campus," He 
urged that the trustees recon- 
sider its location. 

Representing the people of 
Springfield were mayor Charles 
Ryan and former mayor Roger 
Putnam. Ryan pointed out that 
Springfield has more doctors 
and hospitals than any area 
outside of Boston. 

Citing the Booz, Allen and 
Hamilton report which awarded 
Springfield 17 first positions 
out of a total of 34 criteria, the 
mayor felt that some of the 
trustees may not have known 
all the facts about his city. 

It would be difficult to back 
down from the original decision, 
said Ryan, but it would be 
equally difficult to maintain 
such a position in the face of 
the opposition of the faculty 
and deans. 

DECIDE to reconsider, the may- 
or concluded, an in-depth analy- 
sis of each city by the trustees 
themselves would be the best 
way to reach a fair solution.

fered what he considered to be 
a good alternate plan. 

He suggested that the Board 
consider establishing a two 
year medical school at Am- 
herst, with clinical facilities to 
be located in several of the ma- 
jor cities, such as Springfield, 
Worcester and Boston. 

"Medicine is the third largest 
industry in the U. S.," said Dr. 
Samuel Martin, speaking for a 
delegation supporting Amherst 
as the location for the new fa- 

UNIV. OF FLA., stated that the 
trustees should broaden their 
view toward the medical school 
to include health in total. 

"The state must train not 
only doctors, but a team," he 
said. Pointing to his experiences 
in Florida, he felt it was neces- 
sary for the school to be located 
on the University campus in or- 
der to most effectively create 
such a team. 

Dr. George Reader of the Cor- 
nell Medical School, which is lo- 
cated some 300 miles from the 
main campus, discussed the 
problems which evolve from 
the separation of the two fa- 

turn out investigators as well 
as doctors," said Reader. This 
requires laboratories, computer 
centers and other facilities 
which can only be found on the 
University campus. 

Stressing the concept of re- 
gional planning. Dr. Harold 
Pine of Holyoke Hospital cited 
the need for a medical center in 
Western Mass.* 

"Many people do not receive 
the medical care they need be- 
cause the distance to Boston is 
too great," he pointed out, and 
urged that a center be created 
at Amherst. 

Dr. Albert Goss, head of the 
delegation, pointed to the fu- 
ture, and the eventuality of the 
allied schools which would fol- 
low the medical school into be- 
ing. By creating the school at 
Amherst, the problems of 
where to place the various co- 
ordinate departments would be 
eliminated, he concluded. 

AT 4:40 P.M., trustee Fred 
Emerson rose to move that the 
Board reconsider its June 11th 
decision, but a second motion 
that the Board recess until Au- 
gust 4 to take up the question 
of reconsideration was proposed 
by Bishop Weldon and unani- 
mously approved. 

Opinion is varied as to 
whether the board will actually 
reconsider the relocation of the 
medical school. The meeting has 
been tentatively scheduled for 2 
p.m. at the Statler Hilton.

Attention, Veterans 

Help Pass Your Bill 

The Cold War G.I. Bill labeled the Veteran's Readjustment Act 
has been passed by the Senate. This bill is now before the House 
Committee on Vetersuis' Affairs; the question is whether it will come 
out of committee or just be "talked to death". 

The Yarborough Bill as passed by the Senate (over the objec- 
tion of Senator Saltonstall of Massachusetts) would mean $110 a 
month to single vets and $135 to married ones with one dependent. 
Tell me, is it worth your time to write a quick letter to your Con- 
gressman stating where you stand? It may be worth over a grand 
a year to you ! 

I would like you to read a copy of the letter written by a friend 
of mine to the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. I wholehearted- 
ly agree with him. 

Bob Girard '66 


House Committee on Veterans' Affairs 

House Office Building 
Washington, B.C. 

Dear Mr. Chairman: 

I am writing to you in reference to Bill #10023 which pertains 
to the Cold War Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act recently 
passed by the Senate. Being a veteran myself, and a college student 
as well, I can affirm the difficulties that arise without such financial 
assistance, as would be provided if the House were to pass this Bill 
in the same form as the one piloted through the Senate by the Hon- 
orable Senator Yarborough. What little I had saved in the four 
years I spent in the U.S. Navy is gone, and I have maintained myself 
in college only by borrowing and working part-time thirty hours 

Unfortunately, the costs of education and living today make stay- 
ing in school extremely difficult. Many of my contemporaries, strick- 
en by the usual desires that prompt a young man of twenty-four to 
marry, have been forced to drop out of college in order to have 
enough money to return and complete their education later. It is 
"sad but true" that few of them will return; the loss is not their's 
alone but is a loss to the nation as well. 

The Bill should not be a bonus for military service, for it is a 
duty which all of us must shoulder, and should not need to be re- 
warded for; however, the last two, three, and four years come at 
such a time that when the veteran returns to civilian life he finds 
it an extremely difficult transition to make, one which prompts me 
to support a Bill which would ease this readjustment. The cost of 
this proposal, as has been proved by Mr. Gleason of the Veteran's 
Administration, would be negligible over the long run, for the added 
income of these veterans who graduate from college would lead to 
higher taxes, and hence a greater return on the nation's original in- 

As president of the veteran's fraternity at the University of 
Massachusetts (which represents over five hundred vets) I would 
like to say that all of us are confident that you will, after study- 
ing the matter thoroughly, report out of committee the Yarborough 


Sincerely yours, 

Pres. Beta Chi

The Burke family gave its 

first public concert in 1360. 
Since then, the family singers 
have given more than 100 con- 
certs in the U. S. and Canada, 
appeared several times over 
network television and recorded 
selections for Squire Records. 

Last year the Burke Family

The University has been 
granted $14,400 by the National 
Science Foundation for research 
into "The Analysis of Library 
User Circulation Requirements." 

Dr. Richard W. Trueswell, as- 
sociate professor and chairman 
of the industrial engineering de- 
partment at UMass, will direct 
work to be done under the NSF 

The funds, Trueswell said to- 
day, will be used to support 
several assistantships for grad- 
uate students, to provide neces- 
sary photo-electric equipment, 
and to purchase computer us- 
age necessary for the project. 

It is possible that the research 
may lead to a quantitative 
method of improving the libra- 
ry patron's chances of finding 
a wanted book. 

It also may lead to a decision 
strategy for effectively remov- 
ing books from stacks in order 
to establish a core collection or 

to keep the stacks manageable 
in size. 

Dr. Trueswell is a, graduate 
of Stevens Institute of Tech- 
nology. He received his Ph.D. 
degree from Northwestern uni- 
versity, where he did research 
into the uses of data processing 
and computer techniques in a 
university library. 

Before joining the UMass fac- 
ulty in 1958, Dr. Trueswell 
worked in industry and served 
with the U. S. Air Force's Cam- 
bridge Research Center. 

He is a member of the Amer- 
ican Institute of Industrial En- 
gineers, the Operations Re- 
search Society of America and 
the American Society for En- 
gineering Education. 

The University has received a 
$27,780 specialized research 
equipment grant from the Na- 
tional Science Foundation, Dean 
Edward C. Moore of the Grad- 
utae school, announced today. 

The grant will be adminis- 
tered by assistant professors 
Robert P. Novak and Thomas J. 
McAvoy of the UMass chemical 
engineering department. 

Funds will be used to pur- 
chase a specialized analog com- 
puter — an analog computer

And Number Three Looks Just As Good 

Cynicism and curiosity are registered on the faces of Lizzie's brother 
Noah (Ken Bordner), and father, (Michael Hench) upon meeting the 
rainmaker. Bill Starbuck (Francois Regis). 

Lizzie, played by Peggie Clarke, vehemently criticizes her brother and 
father for their husband-hunting on her behalf. 

by Tom Kerrigan 
"The Rainmaker", the comeJ. 
opening at the University Sum 
mer Theatre on July 29 at 8::.0 
p.m. is the story of a glib swinu- 
ler, (played by Francois-Regis v. 
of Paris, France) who drops in 
on a ranching family during a 
drought and promises to conjure 
up an urgently needed rain foi 
$100 — while he also relieves ari- 
dity in the hearts of a girl (Wil- 
braham's Peggy Clarke) obsessed 
with the notion that she is un- 
attractive, and of her brother, 
(Amherst resident Dan Wier) 
troubled with the charge of be- 
ing a bonehead. 

N. Richard Nash, author of 
the play, has wisely sprinkled 
references in his dialogue to 
Essex automobiles and crystal- 
set radios and otherwise indicat- 
ed its action is supposed to occur 
about 25 years ago. For the 

cojnlry-sorcerer's trick of pro- 
ducing rain to save crops was 
then indeed a magic sought more 
urgently in farming and ranch- 
ing areas of America than ever 
was the alchemy of changing 
dross into gold in medieval 

But by mid-twentieth century, 
c ence had stepped in to control 
weather and forever discredit the 
faking medicine men who had 
been travelling the dusty back- 
loads for years with their forked 
sticks and other superstitions, 
like Bill Starbuck in "The Rain- 

As early as 1946, Vincent 
Schaefer began experiments in 
the laboratories of the General 
Electric Corporation at Schen- 
ectady N.Y., which led him to 
discover that dry ice thrown into 
clouds could make them con- 
dense into rain. His colleague, 

Bernard Vonnegut, later discov- 
ered that silver iodide, a com- 
pound previously used chiefly in 
connection with photography, 
could also "make rain" when 
strewn on clouds. Experiments 
at the School of Mines at Socor- 
ro, N. M. bombard it with micro- 
scopic particles of a metal they 
decline to identify so far. 

With these discoveries, hordes 
of "professional, scientific" rain- 
makers bobbed up in the South- 
west, where rain is a rare and 
precious commodity. None of 
these achieved the extraordinary 
success of a man named Irving 
P. Krick, who made a million 
dollars in three years by sowing 
clouds with silver iodide, accord- 
ing to an account by Robert 
Jungk in his book, "Tomorrow is 
Already Here." 

Dr. Krick organized a firm 
called the Water Resources De- 

velopment Corporation, with 
headquarters in Denver, and for 
this firm making weather is a 
Big Business. It receives reports 
night and day from all parts of 
the world about present and 
coming weather conditions, so 
that if a cloud is on the way, the 
firm's rainmaking planes can be 
ready to meet it. 

In 1951, Dr. Krick had con- 
tracts with ranchers by which he 
was to be paid for every inch of 
rainfall over the average of pre- 
vious years. These contracts cov- 
ered three hundred and thirty 
million acres, — a territory as 
large as France. Nearly all his 
clients received more than aver- 
age rainfall, and Krick's receipts 
in 1951 were estimated at around 
ten million dollars. 

One summer Krick furnished 
so much rain that cattle grazers

were asking him to turn off the 
tap. In fact, a lot of Krick's in- 
come goes to insurance premi- 
ums to protect him against 
damage-suits from resort-hotels, 
sporting clubs and other people 
for whom his rain can be injuri- 
ous. He has even been sued for 
traffic accidents resulting from 
wet streets. 

Dr. Krick, however. Is too sci- 
entific, too Big Business, to be 
as dramatically interesting as 
the folk-legend of the rainmaker 
to be seen in the play at the 
University Summer Theatre. It 
is doubtful if Krick is either as

interested in irrigating dried-up

''The Rainmaker" 

by Dave 

"One night you look down and 
there it is, shining in your 
hand." The Bartlett Auditorium 
stage did shine Thursday night 
for the premier performance of 
"The Rainmaker," a situation- 
comedy taken well in hand by 
the University Theatre reperto- 
ry company. Written by N. 
Richard Nash and staged by 
Vincent Brann, the third drama 
presentation of the 1965 Sum- 
mer Arts Festival came across 
with a force that took viewers 
far beyond the immediate stage. 

Relentless drought, life-sap- 
ping heat and the rough human 
texture of America's 20th cen- 
tury west were crafted into 
real feeling by well employed 
techniques of sight and sound. 
"The Rainmaker" is vividly ex- 
perienced and generally power- 
fully portrayed. 

Scenery compares most fa- 
vorably with preceding summer 
and regular season UT produc- 
tions. Three sets occupy the 
Bartlett Hall platform for the 
entire play. Good utilization of 
limited wing space allows Vin- 
cent Brann to have his stage 
and fill it too. Multi-dimentional 
ranch-room flats give a tight, 
wrap-around effect that is sat- 
isfying for audiences and roomy 
for actors. Decorating scenes 
are in the typically old west 
tradition and give much atmos- 
phere and feeling to the show. 
Lighting design by Terry H. 
Wells adds a soft finish to the 
bold sets of Dale Amlund. 

The Rainmaker Is a person- 
able con-man who swaggers on- 
to the H. C. Curry ranch one 
day, armed only with waving 
baton and divinely given tal- 
ents for congerlng up a storm. 
Bill Starbuck, really a smith In 
swindler's clothing, is likably 

Af oore 

arrogant and honestly ineiteful 
in the hands of J^'rancois-Kegis. 
Starbucks answer to a mad, 
mad world.'' "A first-class, A- 
number one lunatic" like him- 

H. C. Curry overrules family 
skepticism and gives Starbusk 
the "hundred bucks" he needs 
to bring a rain in 24 hours. As 
Starbuck puts it, "once in your 
life you have to take a chance 
on a con-man." Michael Hench 
has the physical stature for his 
role as head of the Curry fam- 
ily, but is too sweet-voiced and 
dynamically weak in the part. 

Ken Bordner plays the hard- 
core, know-it-all son, Noah Cur- 
ry, who manages the ranch and 
tries to handle the household 
with a recurrent "if you'd only 
listened to me." Ken is some- 
what stiff and exacting in his 
movements, but gives an other- 
wise strong portrayal. 

Sheriff Thomas (Bill Oran- 
sky) is to his deputy File (Wil- 
liam Blum) as Chester is to 
Mr. Dillon, an interesting and 
comical twist. Bill has been 
starred in a poorly staged stand- 
still part, and is thus disap- 
pointing to those who loved him 
as Argan in "The Imaginary 
Invalid." William Blum has 
great control of his initial por- 
trayal of the lean slow-drawl 
western lawman. The fight 
scene is a knockout. 

Dan Weir as Jim Curry, 
Noah's simple acting kid 
brother, does a beautifully 
bumb job. His every action and 
expression is perfectly naive. 

Peggy Clarke gives a per- 
formance as Lizzie Curry, 
which must be classed as the 
best of the season. Each charac- 
terization, each of her myriad 
vocal expressions, is perfect. 

Smith College Faculty To 
Initiate New Curriculum 

At Smith College a new cur- 
riculum to go into effect in 
September 1966 has been adopt- 
ed by the Faculty after more 
than two years of study, first 
by a special committee and then 
by the entire Faculty. The new 
plan recognizes the better prep- 
aration of entering students and 
the higher academic expecta- 
tions of those graduating. By 
reducing the present fragmenta- 
tion of a student's total pro- 
gram, it will permit closer ad- 
justment of a student's work to 
her preparation and interests, 
and a more organic connection 
among courses taken, especially 
in the major department. 

TRAINING in the liberal arts 
for each student remains the 
first concern of the Faculty. In- 
deed, at a time when the judg- 
ment, breadth of vision and hu- 
manistic concerns traditionally 
associated with the liberal arts 
seem increasingly overshad- 
owed, even jeopardized, by the 
needs and values that derive 
from a technologically-oriented 
culture, the Smith Faculty vig- 
orously reaffirms the liberal 
arts tradition, reasserts the 
value of four years of under- 
graduate college for most stu- 
dents, and recognizes that speci- 
fications should come after gen- 
eral education, not in place of it. 

Today incoming classes show 
great variation in general prep- 
aration for college. Individual 
students show great variation 

in preparation between one sub- 
ject and another. And second- 
ary schools are assuming in- 
creasing responsibility for the 
traditional general education of 
the first two years of college. 
For all these reasons the new 
Smith curriculum will place 
great emphasis on freedom and 
flexibility for the individual 
student in planning her educa- 
tion. While recognizing the im- 
portance of those goals in gen- 
eral education that the present 
wide range of required courses 
("distribution requirements") is 
intended to serve, the new pro- 
gram will rely more on student 
motivation and on careful Fac- 
ulty advising than on fixed 

THE STUDENT will continue 
to spend a substantial part of 
her later years in college in the 
more specialized work of her 
major subject. To test her mas- 
tery, not of individual courses, 
but of some broader segment to 
this subject matter new Field 
Examinations will be introduced 
in each department. 

Each student will be expected 
to plan a program that, in 
combination with her secondary 
school study, will insure the 
breadth that constitutes a lib- 
eral education. Replacing the 
present five courses a semester 
(for a total of forty semester 
courses) with four courses a 
semester, the new curriculum 
will total thirty-two courses 
during the four years. Of these: 

13 courses must be in sub- 
jects not related to the major 

8 to 10 must be in the major 
program (either in the depart- 
ment of the major or in related 
courses approved by that de- 

9 to 11 may fall into either 
category, as seems best for the 
individual student program. 

THE FACULTY has retained 
two formal requirements- in 
areas where such a stimulus 
will l>e most useful to a sub- 
stantial number of students. 
Two to four semesters of work 
in a foreign language and two 
semesters of work in a science 
will be required of students 
who do not achieve exemption 
in those fields. In addition, at 
least three courses, two of them 
above the introduction level, 
must be in a single department 
other than the department of the 
major. Freshmen and sopho- 
mores will now be free to elect 
more upper level courses in 
fields where they are well pre- 
pared. To allow students who 
do so to progress as far as their 
abilities permit, students may 
elect their major department 
earlier and graduate - level 
courses will be offered in all 
departments for undergradu- 
ates advanced enough to take 
them. It is emphasized that this 
does not mean that Smith is 
proposing an extension of its 
program for graduate students

'if OH 'DoUt ScUf . , , 

by Dan Glosband 

Having noted the recent suc- 
cess of the interview as a form 
of literary expression by such in- 
fluential publications as Playboy 
and Daily Worker, we thought 
it our duty to follow suit. Thus, 
you will find before you our first 
venture into the treacherous 
world of the interview — in 
quest of an anonymous member 
of the Board of Trustees. 

Collegian: Tell me sir, how 
long have you been a member of 
the Board? 

Trustee: Arumphh, hmm. 

Collegian: Pardon me, but I 
didn't quite catch that. Oh, 
arumphh, hmm, yes. Thank you. 
And where is your home town? 
... Oh yes . . . pretty country 
out there. Would you mind re- 
vealing which way you voted on 
the Med School decision? 

Trustee: Of course not! I lis- 
tened to the facts, and will stand 
by my choice because it's the 
correct one. I votted for . . . umm

and an exammation period. 
(Courses at the introductory

jor vacations will be at Christ- 
mas after the twelve weeks of 
fall classes and approximately 
in the middle of the spring sem-

FEATURES of the new curricu- 
lum planned for Smith College. 
No more specific information 
will be available until the Fac- 
ulty has worked out the details 
of implementation. Academic 
department and Faculty com- 
mittees will begin work in Sep- 
tember, and further announce- 
ments will be made during the 
forthcoming academic year. 

To carry out longer-range 
studies on problems that are 
not yet resolved, the Faculty 
has created a new Faculty 
Planning Committee. It has also 
recommended that a joint Four- 
College Faculty Committee be 
organized to further the coop- 
erative academic efforts of 
Smith and neighboring Am- 
herst and Mount Holyoke Col- 
leges and the University of Mas- 

The Smith College Faculty 
does not consider the much-dis- 
cussed squeeze from high 
schools and graduate schools a 
threat to the liberal arts college. 
It welcomes the opportunity 
thus afforded to build on a con- 
stantly improving secondary 
preparation and to realize more 
completely the essential goals 
of the liberal arts tradition 
shared by secondary school, 
college and graduate school 

tween Amherst and Worcester 
on the final ballot. 

Trustee: Durned if you're not 
right. Must have been Worces- 
ter. Wouldn't catch me voting 
for Amherst. 

Collegian: What do you have 
against Amherst? 

Trustee: Full of cows ain't it. 
Never seen a cow that belonged 
at Med School. Also full of 
them college students that're do- 
ing all the picketing, and rioting, 
and drinking. 

Collegian: But sir, college stu- 
dents are the ones that will go 
on to Medical School. 

Trustee: Not if I can help it. 

Collegian: Yes, well, thank 
you. By the way, have you ever 
been to Amherst? 

Trustee: Can't say as I have. 
Wife wanted to drive up and look 
at the tulips last spring, but I 
was afraid we'd run into those 
subversives carrying signs 
around the greenhouse. Under- 
stand they're everywhere. 

Collegian: They form a neglig- 
ble part of the community. 

Trustee: Only takes one rot- 
ten apple . . . 

Collegian: Uh-huh. Have you 
ever been to Worcester? 

Trustee: Passed through once 
on the way to visit a nephew in 
Holden. Lots of sick looking peo- 
ple. Sure could use a Med School. 

Collegian: But have you exa- 
mined the sites, studied the cri- 
teria, listened to the reports? 

Trustees: Didn't have to. Soon 
as someone mentioned Worcester 
my bunion started acting up. 
That's always been a good sign 

— means more than a lot of fool 
deans yelping like my hound 

Collegian: I must say that I'm 
impressed by your frankness, I 
just wish we had time to go more 
deeply into the issues. 

Trustee: No need. 

Collegian: Yes, well, in closing, 
would you be in favor of recon- 

Trustee: Seems to me we al- 
ready listened to 'em at one 
meeting. I didn't want that one. 
And as far as I'm concerned, two 
wrongs don't make . . . 

Collegian: I'm familiar with 
the old saying. I'm afraid that's 
all we have time for. Thank you, 
and good-day.

Programming Variety 
Meets Diverse Interests 

by Don Weaver 

WMUA is a "middle of the 
road" radio station where pro- 
gramming is concerned. Our 
programming includes a wide va- 
riety of shows. Music ranges 
from classical to rock and roll 
^the news covers the world and 
the campus. Educational pro- 
grams vary from panel discus- 
sions to dramas. These formats 
arc designed to appeal to both 
campus and community tastes. 

The programming on week- 
days begins at 7:00 a.m. with up 
tempo popular music and lively 
chatter that is bound to wake 
up any student. In the evening, 
two hours of classical music is 
presented for study purposes 
and is followed by soft, easy-lis- 
tening music. To end the broad- 
cast day, a variety of folk, pop- 
ular, and show tunes is offered. 

begins on Friday night with 
"Oldies but Goodies" and the 
lock and roll request show, 
"Crazy Rhythms." Throughout 
the rest of the weekend, a well 
balanced mi.xturc of popular, 
classical, folk and broadway mu- 
sic is presented. 

Student announcers are D.J.'s 
for all the shows, and within 
the limits imposed by the .show's 
format, they the music 
to bo played. Whenever possible, 
these announcers are assigned to 

shows that suit their own musi- 
cal tastes. 

TION, and the campus commun- 
ity are covered in the WMUA 
news spectrum. On weekends 
and weekday mornings, news- 
casts are broadcast on the hour, 
and every evening there are 
comprehensive 15 minute news 
and sports roundups. 

This year, the 9:55 p.m. news 
is solely campus oriented. Of 
course, campus announcements 
are often given during individ- 
ual programs. These announce- 
ments take the place of com- 
mercial messages which cannot 
be used by an educational broad- 
casting station. 

GR.A.M.MING is offered in t h e 
form of panel discussions, D.V.P. 
lectures, interviews, and dram- 
as. When significant issues are 
to be presented, the Student 
Senate meetings are broadcast 

Ne.xt year, the variety of mu- 
sic will remain, but individual 
shows will specialize in particu- 
lar forms of music. Also, in or- 
der to provide a greater service 
to the University community, 
programminfi will be more cam- 
pus oriented. Overall, WMUA 
will continue to offer a broad 
spectrum of programming.

PM broadcasting at WMUA 
began in October of 1952 when 
the station was the fourth non- 
commercial FM station in New 
England, and the first student 
operated collegiate station in 
the same region. However, 
WMUA history begins further 
back than 1952. 

During the pre-World War II 
days at Massachusetts State 
College, broadcasting activities 
were at work in the small stu- 
dios in the tower of South Col- 
lege five flights above the busy 
campus. A series of dramatic 
programs were produced to be 
aired over a network of several 
Western Mass. radio stations. 
The war took the men from the 
campus and along with them 
went campus radio. 

1 1* WAS NOT until the veterans 
were back and the war over 
that student radio returned. 
This time it was closer to a real 
radio station. On the Amherst 
campus students founded a 
small carrier current station 
called WMSC. for Mass. State 
College. At the veterans branch 
campus at Fort De>'ens, WFDM 
was established on similar lines. 

By way of explanation, a car- 
rier current station uses the 
power lines for an antenna and 
is theoretically restricted to 
them. The Devensmen first 
tried using a system of loud- 
speakers, but this failed for two 
good reasons. Annoyed students 
stole them and the faculty 

found out too late that the boys 
could speak as well as hear over 
a few of the more well-placed 


were moved to the college and 
left Devens and the old guard- 
house studios behind. But the 
equipment came with them and 
up it went to the fifth floor stu- 
dios of Smith College. WMSC 
and WFDM were united. . .and 
after long hours of work into 
the night, the radio band at 640 
kc (Am carrier current) came 
alive with the new station bear- 
ing call letters that remain to 
this day. WMUA — Massachu- 
setts University, Amherst. 

WMUA soon became a char- 
ter member of the Pioneer 
Broadcasting System including 
Amherst, Smith and AIC in 
Springfield. This is believed to 
be the first true intercollegiate 
radio network in the U.S. using 
telephone lines to exchange 

BOWKER auditoriums extend- 
ed the studios here on campus 
in addition to a line to Alumni 
Field and Curry Hicks Cage. In 
later years, lines were used to 
carry all the away football 
games and many of the basket- 
ball games. And so WMUA 
grew with the University until 

At this time it was realized 
that college stations were soon 
to be asked to leave this semi- 
legal status on AM and become 

licensed on the FM band. The 
FCC found the AM band too 
crowded and college stations 
were, in reality, not as restrict- 
ed as the law provided. Under 
aid and advice from a willing 
group of faculty advisors, the 
trustees of the University pur- 
chased the FM transmitter and 
licensed WMUA. 

IN OCTOBER OF 1952, the 
curtain on the FM stage opened 
for WMUA with the first broad- 
caston 91.1 mc FM. 

In 1956, WMUA moved into 
brand new studios in the En- 
gineering Building. These stu- 
dios were hailed by many as 
the best in New England. Some- 
what sheepishly, the station 
members revealed that the new 
studios were modeled after the 
old guard-house at Fort Def- 
ens. These studios are still in 
use today supplying the campus 
and surrounding area with 
WMUA, the Voice of the Stu- 
dents and the University. 

tion, WMUA holds to a unique, 
fresh policy. The direction of 
education is towards the large 
staff of students numbering 
near the one hundred mark. 
Most educational stations at- 
tempt to educate the public at 
large. Here, in an atmosphere 
where the college student may 
feel that he is a number, mark- 
ing time before going out to 
meet the world, an opportunity 
is offered to try his wings, test 
the theory and see a job well

W.MIJA programming is initiated and carried out entirely by its student staff. Students are in- 
vited to drop into the studio to see first-hand a ridio station in operation.

Amherst College will raise its 
comprehensive annual charge for 
room, board, tuition and fees 
from the preesnt S2424 to $2600, 
effective in the fall of 1966. 

The increase — a total of $174 — 
was made necessary by rising 
costs of room and board, and by 
the College's desire to provide 
faculty compensation that i s 
commensurate with that of other 
leading institutions. 

Despite the increase in charge, 
Amherst undergraduates support 
only 41 percent of the cost of 
their education; income from en- 
dowment accounts for 36 per- 
cent, gifts and grants cover 14 
percent, with miscellaneous 
sources producing the balance.

To Air 

Director of Athletics Warren 
P. McGuirk, today announced 
that radio station WTTT of Am- 
herst would be responsible for es- 
tablishing a state-wide network 
that would broadcast the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts 1%5 
nine game football schedule. 

"During the past two years, 
our football games have been 
aired on a state wide basis", Mc- 
Guirk commented, "and we feel 
certain that WTTT will do an 
outstanding job with the broad- 
casts this year. The play-by-play 
announcing will be handled by 
Fred Cusick, who broadcasts the 
Boston Bruins Hockey games 
and by Bill Crowley who has 
done baseball broadcasts for the 
Boston Red Sox and currently is 
public relations director for the 
Red Sox". 

Massachusetts, the 1964 num- 
ber one major college football 
team in New England and the 
defending Yankee Conference 
Champions, will open their 1965 
schedule on September 18th 
against the University of Maine 
in Orono and then play the first 
game in the new 24,(X)0 seat 
Alumni Stadium a week later 
against American International 

Amherst College has achieved 
the $20 million goal of its three- 
year Capital Program, one of the 
most ambitious short-term de- 
velopment campaigns ever un- 
dertaken by a small college. 

Nearly half of the College's 
11,000 living alumni and many 
parents, friends, corporations 
and foundations contributed a 
total of $20,051,174 to the drive. 

Achievement of the goal, an- 
nounced recently by Harry W. 
Knight of New York, national 
chairman of the Program, is one 
of several major objectives in 
the College's plans to strengthen 
its academic and financial re- 
sources over the coming decade. 
Among the other objectives are 
to raise $36 milllion in the dec- 
ade ending in 1971 (of which 
$20 million is a part) while at 
the same time increasing annual 
giving through the Alumni Fund 
to $500,000 a year. 

Amherst originally set out to 
raise $17 million in the three- 
year Capital Program, which be- 
gan in the spring of 1%2. One 
year ago, however, the objective 
was raised to $20 million to en- 
able the College to undertake

certain projects that had origi- 
nally been scheduled later in the 
development plan. Among these 
projects are the construction of 
a music building and auditorium. 
Other funds from the Capital 
Program are being used, or have 
been used, in the construction of 
new dormitories, a new dining 
hall, the Robert Frost Library — 
the gift of a single donor — a sci- 
ence building, and for endow- 
ment for faculty sedaries and 
student financial aid. 

An organization of 2500 al- 
umni and parents took part in 
planning and soliciting for the 
Capital Program. They raised 
funds not only from parents 
(about $250,000) and alumni of 
the College, but also from cor- 
porations, foundations and other 
donors. Gifts were made in the 
form of cash and securities, in 
real estate and a wide variety 
of miscellaneous donations rang- 
ing from stamp collections to 
sail boats. The largest single 
contribution was $3,500,000 for 
the Frost Library; the smallest 
was one dollar.

Trustees Vote 12-10: 
No Reconsideration

BOSTON- -Final hopes for 
relocation of the proposed med- 
ical school on the Amherst cam- 
pus were dealt a deathblow yes- 
terday when the Board of Trus- 
tees voted 12 to 10 to stand by 
their original June 11 decision 
to place the lacilitles in Wor- 

A decision to reconsider was 
tabled last Wednesday when the 
trustees heard testimony for 
and against the Worcester site. 

Opening yesterday's session, 
trustee Fred C. Emerson (Aga- 
wam), sponsor of the motion to 
reconsider, outlined the disad- 
vantages of placing the medical 
school in Worcester. 

Such action, he said, would 
create the need for another 
state university. This would 
significantly raise the cost of 
the project and duplicate many 
facilities already in existence on 
the Amherst campus. 

"I urge every trustee to visit 
each of the proposed sites be- 
fore making this final decision," 
he concluded. 

qualifications necessary for a 
medical school site," stated 
trustee Robert D. Gordon (Lin- 
coln), who cited that city's 
proximity to several large pop- 
ulation centers, which, in his 
opinion, would provide the wid- 
est variety of patients. 

In addition to the excellent 
hospitals and staffs ready and 
willing to aid the school, said 
Gordon, Worcester is also with- 
in the range of Amherst and 
Boston facilities, and would 
serve the entire state. 

"We have made the right 
choice," declared trustee Hugh 
Thompson (Milton). "We have 
a fine site and it would be a 
crime to postpone action any 
longer," he continued, urging 
trustees to establish a "first- 

rate medical school in Worces- 

A motion was proposed by 
trustee Joseph P. Healey (Ar- 
lington) to vote openly by roll- 
call. It was unanimously ac- 
cepted by the Board. 

MENT of the result of the vote, 
it was suggested that a delega- 
tion of trustees be sent to 
Worcester to get things moving 
as soon as possible. It was also 
suggested that in the interest of 
greater harmony, all trustees 
work together as a unit to make 
the medical school the finest 

President Lederle stated that 
the University administrators 
would strive, to carry out the 
Board's decision to the best of 
their ability and expressed his 
belief that the new medical 
school will add to the growing 
excellence of education in Mas- 

Trustees 'ntently listen as each was called upon to cast his vote for or against reconsideration.

Blood Low 

Cooley-Dickinson Hospital of 
Northampton is, along with 
many other Massachusetts hos- 
pitals, facing a shortage of blood 
supply. Shelve stock is low, and 
replenishment is needed. 

The number of potential don- 
ors at the University is large, 
and the good they would be doing 
the community is immeasurable. 
Cooley-Dick has spent years 
helping the University, and it is 
the University's turn to help its 
neighboring hospital. 

The arrangements for donation 
may be made according to the 
schedule below. The chance to 
benefit mankind is not often 
open to so many of us so easily.

A Univwsal Picture Iffil 



Thy Decision Come, 
Thy Will Be Done 

Your decision has been made. You have chosen, in the 
face of opposition from legislators, academic officials and 
medical experts alike, to stick by your guns and place the 
medical school in Worcester. 

You have acted, and by so doing have created for your- 
selves a clear and simple mandate — you must prove to 
those of us in doubt that your decision was indeed the 
product of a consciencious appraisal of the facts. 

You now have the opportunity to prove or disprove 
the wisdom of your decision. Let the opposition act as an 
added incentive for excellence. 

We hope we have been wrong. We urge you to prove 
we have been wrong. If you succeed, we will be the first 
to praise you. If you fail, you will have done immeasurable 
damage to both this University and this State. 

The eyes of the commonwealth are upon you. Now is 
the time to forget and bury past differences and work to- 
gether as one force to create a medical school that will be a 
source of pride to the State, the University, and to your- 
selves. Now is the time to dispel our apprehensions. Now is 
the time to act. 

Apathy And The Arts 

When a superlative, enriching program of events is 
brought to a university campus with the express purpose 
of providing enjoyable and culturally beneficial entertain- 
ment to the University community, it is reasonable to ex- 
pect that members of the community will take advantage 
of it. 

Not so with the University's Summer Fine Arts Fes- 
tival, America and the Arts. 

The apathy of both faculty and students towards the 
festival has been disheartening. Such a series should en- 
gender a desire to benefit from its many offerings, but it 
has met only disinterest. 

Were it a mediocre effort, then perhaps it would be 
deserving of scorn, but it has received nothing but praise 
from a variety of critics. These same critics noticed the 
lack of a student audience. Referring to the Burke Family 
Singers, who appeared Monday evening, Wayne Smith of 
the Greenfield Recorder-Gazette said, "The famil> seemed 
to spark little interest among the summer students on the 
University campus. It is a pity that not more in the area 
gave them a couple of hours." 

Such comment rings true for the many other events. 
At the repertory productions, the audiences are estimated 
to be at least 85 per cent composed of people from outside 
the University community — people who have come from 
as far as New York City to see the plays so highly praised 
by reviewers. 

THE FESTIVAL is here, continuing. It is not receiv- 
ing the student and faculty support of which it is worthy, 
although it was created with them in mind. 

A fine opportunity for fine entertainment has been 
presented to the members of the University community. 
That they are not taking advantage of it is truly their

South Amherst 

New College 



ac-a/e /n /rti/ds 

Hampshire College has already acquired approximately 300 acres 
of land for a campus. The site is approximately 6 miles from 
Smith College (in Northampton), 6 miles from Mount Holyoke 
(in South Hadley), and 5 miles from Amherst College and the 
University of Massachusetts. 

Inovations Are 
Essence of College 

by Peter Hendrickson 
The New College in South 
Amherst has been a hush-hush 
operation by the Trustees of 
Tinker Hill who have been buy- 
ing parcels of land for the col- 
lege for the last six months. 

The three men are interim 
trustees of the Hampshire Col- 
lege and have named Charles 
Longworth, assistant to the 
President of Amherst College, 
chairman of the board. Longs- 
worth explained that he was 
satisfied with the land pur- 
chases and the location, but that 
much more money was needed. 
He said that the six million 
was but a start and that he 
hoped the 15,000 students in the 
four-college area would help 
raise the additional funds. 

HE HOPES the students will 
display enthusiasm and faith in 
the child of the four colleges in 
their daring endeavor. The trus- 
tee stressed that the plans for 
the new college are still tenta- 
tive but that it will be a major 
departure from traditional edu- 
cational methods. 

We are shooting high, he 
said, and are confident that the 
measures we undertake will in- 
fluence the pattern of higher 
education throughout country. 


The school will abandon such 
institutions as fraternities, in- 
ter-collegiate athletics, top- 
heavy administrational control 
and impersonal relaiions a..i0ug 
the members of the college. 

The experimental, proposals 
of the four-college study board 
in 1958 are to be closely studied 
to see which proposals will be 
put into action at the new col- 

0:\E PROPOSAL to create a

Jmlth and other colleges. It will 
DC in keeping with the training 
in independence based on the 
conviction that the average stu- 
dent entering one of the better 
colleges is capable of far more 
independence than he now dem- 

The traditional concept of de- 
partments and "taking courses" 
will probably be abandoned 
with the concept of "fields of 

Hampshire College, a new undergraduate lib- 
eral arts college devoted to education of the high- 
est quality, will be established in Western Massa- 
chusetts with the academic support of Amherst, 
Smith and Mount Hoyoke Colleges and the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. 

Initial plans call for the creation of a residen- 
tial coeducational college with a student body of 
about one thousand. It will be located in South 
Amherst, off Bay 'Rd., a site roughly equidistant 
from the four supporting institutions. Hampshire 
College will enjoy the scholastic support of these 
colleges, and their presidents will be members of 
the first board of trustees. 

The new institution is being established to ex- 
tend and strengthen already existing exchanges of 
courses and teachers and the cooperative use of 
facilities among the four supporting institutions. 

For a number of years the four colleges have 
been collaborating to reduce duplicate efforts and 
to extend their resources in a variety of ways. 
These have included joint faculty appointments, 
an arrangement whereby students at any campus 
may take courses at one of the neighboring col- 
leges, cooperative use of library resources, the 
operation of an educational FM radio station and 
publication of a common calendar of events. 

It is expected that Hampshire College will 
draw on these collaborative programs and will 
help foster others. 

Hampshire College will be designed to be free 
from traditional commitments regarding curri- 
culum, alumni, departmental divisions, and other 
restrictions, and, thus, will have a flexibility in 
p.ogram which will enable it to engage in experi- 
ments to determine whether costs of education 
can be substantially reduced without impairing 

The new institution is also being established 
to help relieve the increasingly urgent need for 
facilities for higher education within the frame- 
work of a smcill college. 

As outlined in a preliminary statement adopt- 
ed by the College's trustees, Hampshire College 

• Extend and strengthen the existing pattern 
of the exchange of courses and teachers and 
the joint utilization of facilities among the 
four supporting institutions to enrich its 
and their educational offerings. 

• Help relieve the increasingly urgent need 
for facilities for higher education. 

• Maintain the advantages of a small college 
at a time when sheer size is creating prob- 

lems for other institutions. 

• Utilize the flexibility inherent in a privately 
supported college readily to adapt its pro- 
grams and methods to take advantage of 
new educational opportunities as they de- 

• Avail itself of a freedom from commitment 
to tradition as to curriculum, departmental 
divisions, relationships of faculty, alumni, 
students and trustees in order to engage 
in promising experiments in the field of col- 
lege education. 

• Attempt to reduce substantially the costs 
of college education without impairing 
quality, under the following advantageous 
conditions : 

— A curriculum designed to prevent unnec- 
essary proliferation of courses and to take 
advantage of the existence of exchange 
facilities offered by strong and established 
neighboring institutions. 
—A campus and plant not the result of 

accretion, but designed for efficiency. 
— The elimination of extraneous and costly 
features such as intercollegiate athletics 
and fraternity houses. 
The first board of trustees of Hampshire Col- 
lege will include the presidents of the four sup- 
porting colleges: Richard G. Gettell, Mount Hol- 
yoke; John W. Lederle, University of Massachu- 
setts; Thomas C. Mendenhall, Smith; and Calvin 
H. Plimpton, Amherst. Other trustees will be 
Charles W. Cole, president-emeritus of Amherst 
and former United States ambassador to Chile; 
Winthrop S. Dakin of Amherst, an attorney; and 
Harold F. Johnson of Southampton, Long Island, 
New York, retired attorney. 

The impetus for the formation of Hampshire 
College came from a pledge of $6,000,000 by John- 
son, whose interest in the possibility of a fifth 
college in the area stemmed from a proposal writ- 
ten in 1958 by a faculty committee of the other 
four colleges. Their report, entitled "New College 
Plan," will be carefully reviewed in formulating 
the educational plans for Hampshire College. • 
An interim organization, The Hampshire Col- 
lege Educational Trust, has been formed to con- 
duct the affairs of the new institution. Charles 
R. Longsworth, formerly assistant to the presi- 
dent at Amherst, has been appointed chairman of 
the Trust. 

No date has been set for the opening of Hamp- 
shire College, but Longsworth indicated that it 
will probably not be before the fall of 1968.

Citizens' Group Reopens Med School Battle 

As far as the Otizens Committee on the Medical School Site in Amherst 
U concerned the Med School battle is stiU raging. The Committee asked Gov. 
John A. Volpe TTiursday to institute a complete review of state health-care 
needs before allowing construction of a University of Massachusetts medical 
school in Worcester. 

Takes New Task 

The action appeared to move the battleground over the medical school site 
to a new level of government. 

UMass trustees voted in Boston Wednesday against reconsidering their 
June 11 decision to locate the proposed new school in Worcester. Both deci- 
sions came on 12 to 10 votes. 

State Rep. Allan McGuane. D-Greenfield, House chairman of the Legisla- 
tive Committee on Education, Thursday predicted refusal to reconsider the Wor- 
cester location will widen a rift he said is developing between trustees and 

Having demonstrated they are not above politics, McGuane said, trustees 
now wiU find themselves subjected to political considerations in future UMass 
legislation and to demands for patronage and other concessions when they seek 
passage of university-related bills. 

Rep McGuane indicated, however, that he will vote reluctantly for funds 
for a medical school in Worcester, because he believes the state needs such a 


The citizens' committee, with offices in Amherst, but claiming statewide 
support, was organized in July to work for reconsideration. Its honorary chair- 
man is famed heart specialist Dr. Paul Dudley White, personal physician to 
former President Eisenhower. 

In a mimeographed statement released late Thursday, the committee urged 
establishment of a study commission with powers including recommendations of 
sites for any publicly supported medical schools. 

Its assignment would be a complete study of health-care needs in aU areas 
of the contunonwealth. 

Would Be Binding 
"Because the perspective of this commission would be broader than that 
of the University of Massachusetts." the statement urges, "it's reconmienda- 
tions would be binding on the board of trustees of the university " 

If the Worcester site is retained, the committee urges establishment of a 
second medical school on the Amherst campus. 

"The second school might start as a two-year school." the committee sug- 

Released by the committee's executive chairman, Prof. Albert E. Goss of 
the UMass psychology department, the statement urges giving the proposed 
study commission the duty of reviewing, "policy for the commonwealth for

On July 16. the University 
Summer Repertory Theatre be- 
gan its first season. The open- 
ing production was The Fan- 
tasticks written by Harvey 
Schmidt and Tom Jones and 
staged by Harry Mahnken. A 
week later on July 22, Cosmo A. 
Catalano, Managing Director of 
the Theatre opened his produc- 
tion of Moliere's The Imaginary 
Invalid. The season's third and

by Vincent Brann. 

Directors Catalano, Mahnken

Mr. Amlund are serving in their 
respective capacities with the

production work. In addition to 
the roles which the actors have 
taken on, they have responsibili- 
ties in the scenery shop, the 
costume room, or the press of- 
fice. Each evening after a per- 
formance, the setting and light-, 
ing for that particular show 
must be "struck." The next aft- 
ernoon the setting for that eve- 
ning's production is set-up and 
the actors and director run 
through the play polishing bits 
of business and working to 
keep the performance fresh and 
exciting. This is the essence of 
the repertory idea: to keep 
playing the same group of plays 
many times but with the same 
gusto and vitality of an open- 
ing night. 

Area critics have found open- 
ing nights at the University 
Summer Theatre a delight. Said 
Wayne A. Smith in the Green- 
field Recorder-Gazette of the 
opening night performance of 
The Fantasticks, "A miracle has 
been wrought." Mrs. Alexander 
Milne wrote in the Daxly Hamp- 
shire Gazette that the produc- 
tion was "highly enjoyable" and 
"strikingly effective." When Mr. 
Catalano's production of The 
Imaginary Invalid opened on 
July 22, the critic for the Bos- 
ton Record American, Elliot 
Norton, was in the audience. 
The following Monday his en- 
tire column was devoted to the 
production. The headline read 
"UMass Student Players, Fresh. 
Funny, in Classic." He went on 
to say that the acting in partic- 
ular was "attractive and buoy- 
antly high spirited." The final 
offering. The Rainmaker, was 
no less enthusiastically greeted 
on its opening night. The re- 
viewer for the Daily Hampshire 
Gazette hailed the production 
as "refreshing as a spring 
rain." Wayne Smith recalled its 
"moments of comedy and touch- 
es of pathos" and recommended 
that "the play is worth seeing."

week in which the full reper- 
toire was performed. The se- 
quence is repeated this week

Over 3000 Fall Openings 
In New England Colleges 


While college enrollments in 
New England this fall are ex- 
pected to exceed even the most 
liberal estimates of a few years 
ago, more than 3,000 freshman 
places remain open to qualified 

That's the word from Dr. 
Martin Lichterman, director of 
the New England Board of 
Higher Education, a regional 
agency supported by the tax- 
payers of all six New England 

Dr. Lichterman believes that 
the total enrollment In New 
England colleges and universi- 
ties this fall will be more than 
372,000 — nearly 35,000 more 
than were enrolled a year ago, 
and 114,000 more than attended 
Institutions of higher education 
in the region only five years 

Even so, his agency's annual 
midsummer survey of freshman 
vacancies turned up 3,029 plac- 
es still unfilled, one-third of 
which are at general purpose, 
four-year, non-sectarian institu- 

The reason for "this according 
to Lichterman, is the establish- 
ment of several new institu- 
tions, primarily two-year junior 
or community colleges, and the 
expansion of others before crit- 
ical shortages occur. 

As a result, he said, there is 
greater capacity for incoming 
freshmen in New England col- 
leges and universities this year 
than ever before. 

Of the 80 institutions that re- 
ported freshman vacancies in 
June, 58 are still willing to con-

Funds for the commission 
should be solicited from private 
and federal sources, the com- 
mittee suggests. 

Its members should include 
representatives of each of the 
major health disciplines, such as 
medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, 
nursing, psychology and vet- 
erinary medicine, "as well as 
prominent laymen such as Ri- 
chard Cardinal Gushing." 

"Until the report of this com- 
mission is received, no further 
steps should be taken in develop- 
ment of a medical school of the 
University in Worcester," the 
committee urges. "A delay of a 
year or so in development of the 
medical school is a small price to 
pay for restudy of what is a seri- 
ous mistake, and for develop- 
ment of more comprehensive 
plans for health care in the com- 

Seemingly the last possibility 
of continued efforts toward re- 
consideration was a report that 
a group of UMass students has 
circulated petitions here. 

University spokesmen were un- 
able to trace the petition reports.

For World Wide Moving 




To all members of the Faculty: 

The Board of Trustees at its meeting on August 4, voted un- 
animously to approve the following statement presented by Bishop 
Weldon. The Board requested the President to transmit it to the 

"I think one of the first responsibilities we now have is to ac- 
knowledge the fact that there has been some tension between the 
Board and the faculty and I would like to make a motion that the 
Board ask President Lederle to reassure the faculty that we are in 
agreement with them and that we are aware of the fact that this is 
an educational enterprise, that we are building a school and that 
we are looking to make it a superior medical school and that we 
recognize that we cannot, the Board by itself cannot, make it that 
superior medical school. 

' "I think also we should acknowledge the fact that in their 
presentation this statement was made: 'Failure to reconsider your 
decision of June 11 is certain to produce a demoralizing effect on 
both faculty and students. Prolonged conflict between faculty and 
Trustees may unhappily result, and we Deans would be grossly ir- 
responsible if we neglected to mention this unpleasant — yet real — 
possibility. Needless to say there could be no victor: everyone would 
lose — including the taxpayers of Massachusetts.' I think we ought 
to indicate that we do not believe that there is any need for pro- 
longed conflict — that just the same as it is possible for the mem- 
bers of the Board to close ranks and to get totally, wholeheartedly 
and unconditionally behind this — so also it is possible for the men 
of vision and understanding and goodwill and good faith on the fa- 
culty to do likewise. They also state: 'In recent years a number of 
American campuses have been deeply scarred by wounds from such 
conflicts. It would grieve all of us if the University of Massachu- 
setts should be added to this list.' I think we ought to state cate- 
gorically that it is our intention to do everything within our power 
to make sure that we don't put the University on that list, number 
one, and to call upon them to help us to see to it that the Univer- 
sity does not yet so qualify. This is something for all of us on the 
Board and on the faculty to work together to achieve."

UMass Releases Report on 
Water Resources Problem 

The University of Massachu- 
setts, in a report prepared for 
the Massachusetts Water Re- 
sources Commission, has recom- 
ommends five problem areas for 
complex water resource develop- 
ment problems." 

The UMass report, compiled 
during the last seven years by 
Associate Professor George R. 
Higgins of the University's civil 
engineering department, also rec- 
ommends five problems areas for 
consideration in future studies. 

— Increased emphasis on run- 
off from the state's small 
drainage areas. 
— Research on the energy- 
budget method of evapora- 
tion studies as compared to 
the water-use method. 
— Comparative evaluation of 
drainage area factors — soil 
types, geology, topography, 
drainage area shape, surface 
cover, and land use 
— Studies of various plants, 
trees, and glasses to deter- 

mine if selective plant!- g is 
— Development < f better meth- 
ods of analyz'ng and present- 
ing results of available data. 
IN HIS REPORT, Prof. Hig- 
gins says, "The general water 
problem facing Massachusetts is 
to obtain the information needed, 
and to undertake appropriate wa- 
ter-supply developments to meet 
the demands for population 
growth, increased per capita use, 
and shifts in the location of both 
population and industry. Pollu- 
tion control, adequate ground 
jmd surface water supplies, flood 
control, recreation, and fish and 
wildlife management are of vital 
importance for present and fu- 
ture generations. 

"Massachusetts, at the present 
time, has an adequate annual 
water supply for the state as u 
whole. However, serious local 
quality and supply problems 
exist. Large variations in season- 
al and daily streamflow, coupled 
with increafing water use, pres- 
ent an increasing problem for

VOL. 1, NO. 16 


The Frost Library, newest addition to the Amherst College campus, Is undergoing final prepara- 
tions for its opening at the beginning of the fall semester. 

Dr. Leland Miles To Lecture 
On Humor In Literature 

as an award-winning author 
and literary critic and an out- 
standing educator as well as a 
humorist, will speak here on 
Tuesday, Aug. 17 under the 
auspices of the Summer Fine 
Arts Festival. His topic will be 
"Humorous Moments in Ameri- 
can Literature." 

Dr. Miles, now Dean of the 
College of Arts & Sciences, at 
the University of Bridgeport 
(Connecticut) won the 1961 
Sachs Prize awarded by the Cin- 
cinnatti Institute of Fine Arts 
for his book, "John Colet and 
the Platonic Tradition," the 
first of a trilogy. During the 
spring and summer of 1964 he 
worked on the second book 
(about St. Thomas More) as an 
American Council of Learned 
Societies Postdoctoral Fellow at 
Harvard, and a Fulbright Sen- 
ior Research Scholar at King's 
College, University of London. 
The third volume will be on 

Dr. Miles was also widely ap- 
preciated as the moderator and 
producer of the highly ac- 
claimed television program, 
"Casing the Classics." Originat- 
ing at the CBS outlet in Louis- 
ville, for three years the pro- 
gram delighted its many en- 
thusiastic viewers from Atlan- 
ta, Ga., to New York City. 
While Dr. Miles' subject matter 
on this program— the contro- 
versial classics of literature- 
was one of high educational in- 
terest to his audience, his pop- 
ular method of approaching 
these classics with wit and hu- 

mor produced a "fun" program 
far removed from much of the 
boring material so frequently 
characteristic of "educational" 

DR. MILES probably has the 
most versatile list of publica- 
tions in the country, ranging all 
the way from learned theologi- 


cal studies of Christianity and 
Platonism in the Anglican The- 
ological Rerieiv and The Ency- 
clopedia of Philosophy, to hu- 
morous essays in The Rotarian 
and The San Quentin Prison 
News (not to mention love po- 
etry in Greenwich Village's 
Pegasus. LP lecture-recordings 
on Thomas Wolfe and the Bron- 
tes, serious literary articles on 
Wordsworth and W. C. Wil- 
liams, reviews, serio-comic fea- 
tures for the Louisville Courier- 
Joumal, a research text, and so- 
cial commentaries in such mag- 

azines as School and Society 
and Paris Kiosk for Americans 

On the lecture platform his 
talents are equally versatile. He 
has filled pulpits in churches 
of many denominations and has 
spoken at university convoca- 
tions, women's clubs, dramatic 
societies, college commence- 
ments, banquets, town halls, li- 
brary associations and teachers 

DR. MILES was born in Bal- 
timore, Maryland and received 
his B.A. at Juniata College in 
Huntington, Pa. He received his 
M.A. and Ph. D. at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina and did 
post-doctoral work in religion 
at Duke. Then followed a Dan- 
forth Scholarship at the Union 
Theological Seminary, and a 
Lilly Fellowship at the Indiana 
University School of Letters. He 
served as Chairman of the En- 
glish Department at Hanover 
College in Indiana before going 
to the University of Cincinnati 
in 1960. where he founded a 
Great Books program for stu- 
dent engineers and constructed 
a new English program for the 
University's technical colleges. 

Besides being an author and 
an educator, Dr. Miles is an ex- 
Flying Tiger, and during the 
1950's was a director of ship- 
board forums for the Council on 
Student Travel to Europe. In 
1955 Dr. Miles and his family 
lived in Somerset, England, 
where he wrote his best-known 
and still-selling humorous book, 
"Americans Are People." 

Frost Library Is 
Near Completion 

What's it like to move a 360,000-volume library? Having neariy 
completed the job of moving the Amherst College collection from 
Converse Library, its home for the past 48 years to the new Robert 
Frost Library, Charles T. Laugher, associate librarian of Amherst 
says, "It wasn't as bad as I had expected, but it's not the kind of 
thing I'd like to do every year." 

The actual move from Converse to the Frost Library began July 
6. but the planning of the process has occupied Laugher's attention 
for nearly a year. Among the problems he faced during that time 
were such considerations as: Do you just pack books in boxes and 
carry them from one building to another? How can you be sure that 
all the volumes will end up in their proper places in the new build- 
ing? Which books do you keep and which do you discard? How many 
men will the move require and how long will the job take them? 

ONE OF THE FIRST PROBLEMS to be faced was where to 
put the books. Although the Frost Library contains almost twice 
the space of Converse, a plan had to be devised whereby those 
volumes which were most often in use could be retrieved easily from 
the six levels of storage stacks. The solution was to place volumes 
in the social sciences, literature and languages on the upper three 
levels of the new building, where the stacks are interspersed with 
study areas for students and faculty. The three levels below the mam 
floor were allocated to volumes which contain rarely used informa- 
tion or information which is readily available in the library collec- 
tions of the various academic departments. 

The working out of this theory in the practice of the moving 
process was not easy. First, the several hundred thousand books had

the old library were then moved to the new building to supplement 
the 20 000 new shelves, and were ei*ccted in position before a smgie

THE $3.5 MILLION Robert Frost Library is scheduled to be m

ever the old library has maintained its regular operations through- 
out the moving process for the students and faculty who are work- 
ing on various projects at the College during the summer months. 
The only complaint so far has been that it takes a little longer than 
usual for the library staff to come up with a requested volume. One 
wonders how they could find it at all^ ^ 

Site Picked for 
UM Med School 

WORCESTER — The location 
of the planned University of 
Massachusetts Medical School 
here was selected Tuesday. 

A site at the Worcester State 
Hospital was considered "the 
best site in Worcester, and 
therefore will be the location 
recommended for the school," 
according to John W. Haigis 
Jr., chairman of the buildings 
and grounds committee of the 
university trustees. 

It was only last week that 
this city won its competition 
with Amherst for the prized 
medical school when the trus- 
tees ruled out reconsideration 
of a vote selecting Worcester. 

Haigis led a group of trus- 
tees Tuesday on what was to 
have been a tour of three pro- 
posed sites. The committee de- 
cided, however, that it would 
look only at the Worcester State 
Hospital property. 

"We will recommend the 
State Hospital site to the full 
board of trustees at the Sept. 10 
meeting," Haigis said. 

According to Haigis, the next 
step following the recommen- 
dation to the full board will be 
the selection of an architect. 

It will take about a year and 
one half to draw the plans, ac- 
cording to Haigis. 

He said bids will then be let, 
with construction taking about 
two years. 

"Students will be admitted by 
September of 1969," he said. 

Original plans were for com- 
pletion by 1968, but Haigis said, 
"the long delay in selecting the 
site will put off completion of 
the school." 

The group arrived in Worces- 
ter at 10 a.m. City Mgr. Francis 
J. McGrath, who led Worces- 
ter's fight for the medical 
school, briefed the committee 
on the three previously-consid- 
ered sites: the City Hospital lo- 
cation, Fairlawn Hospital and 
the Worcester Hospital. 

The trustees were welcomed 
to the city by Worcester Mayor 
Paul V. MuUaney. 

After the briefing, they went 
to the state hospital on Belmont 
St., where they spent over an 
hour before returning to City 
Hall, where Haigis outlined the 
tentative timetable for construc-

Art Department Expands, Builds Foundry 

By Barrie MacKay 

The University has acquired a 

Under the direction of Assist- 
ant Professor David Slivka, a 
foundry has been added to the art 
department, making the Univer- 
sity one of the few institutions 
in the country with such sculp- 
turing facilities. The University 
joins such schools as The Rhode 
Island School of Design and The 
University of California at Ber- 
keley in offering this unique pro- 
gram for casting bronze. 

The art department offers a 
wide range of courses, exhibits, a 
student art club and faculty con- 
sidered excellent by authorities. 

Slivka, who has been visiting 
professor at numerous universi- 

ties, has been instrumental in es- 
tablishing lost wax casting pro- 
grams at a number of schools. 
He is considered to be a pioneer 
of the lost wax technique in this 

THE LOST WAX process is 
one of the oldest methods for 
casting known to man. It was 
used by many ancient cultures 
among which were the Chinese 
and some African nations. In this 
process a plaster cast is taken of 
a sculpture first made in wax. 
This is then placed in a kiln 
where it is heated until the wax 
is melted out leaving a plaster 

Hence the "lost wax" aspect of 
the method. The bronze is then 
poured into the plaster mold and,

now want to move ahead with

soon as possible."

The 200-acre site is mostly 
farm land formerly used by the 
state hospital. 

The Worcester City Hospital 
site contained 21 acres, but con- 
siderable demolition would have 
been necessary to prepare it for 
construction. The Fairlawn Hos- 
pital site contained 43 acres, 
mostly field and woodland.

after it hardens, the plaster is 
broken away. The sculpture is 
then finished by sawing off pro- 
trusions left by the tubes which 
fed the bronze to the variouft 
areas of the mold and by using 
an acid to burnish the piece to 
an overall uniform color. 

The foundry should be an ex- 
cellent draw for the department's 
expanding graduate program. Ac- 
cording to Slivka, professional 
sculptors from the northeast 
have shown an interest in attend- 
ing the school so that they would 
be able to use the facility for 
casting their sculpture. 

MENT is growing with the ra- 
pidly expanding university. Since 
1958 the faculty has increased 
from three to 15 and the total 
student enrollment in art courses 
from 96 to nearly 900. The grad- 
uate program, which in 1959 did 
not even exist, has 30 students 
this year. 

Studio courses are offered in 
all the major areas including: 
design, drawing, oil and water 
color painting, printmaking, 
ceramics, and sculpture; there is 
also an expanding art history de-

Graduate Students Protest 
Compulsory Athletic Fee 

Editor's note: A growp of 
Graduate students are petition- 
ing against the imposition of 
compulsory athletic fees on 
them. This is the first time that 
graduate students have been re- 
quired to pay such fees, and 
they feel this move is unjust. 
The body of the petition con-

taining their views is cited be- 

They are presently in contact 
with Dean Moore of the Gradu- 
School regarding amelioration. 
When contacted by the Colle- 
gian, Moore replied, "I don't 
think anything can be done, not 
right now anyway." 

We, the undersigned, protest 
the compulsory athletic fee to be 
imposed upon all full - time 
graduate students. We feel that 
this fee should be optioned pri- 
marily for the following reasons: 

1. The primary interest of 
graduate students is academics 
rather than athletics. Whereas 
participation in athletic events 
is a traditional and integral part 
of an undergraduate education, 
such participation at the grad- 
uate level has been the preroga- 
tive of the individual. A compul- 
sory athletic fee, therefore, 
would be an imposition upon 
those students whose interest is 
not athletics. 

There are ancillary, practical 
reasons for making the fee op- 
tional : 

2. Any additional expenditure 
is a burden to most graduate 
students, whose weekly income 
is $50 before taxes. (Based on 
teaching assistantships or Fed- 

3. It will no longer be poss- 
ible for those students who do 
wish to attend athletic events 
to sit with faculty members. The 
establishment of a rapport be- 
tween graduate students and 
faculty should be a primary aim 
of policies governing graduate 

4. For the many graduate 
students with families, the ne- 
cessity of arriving at the game 
early to secure decent seating 
entails an additional expense 
for baby-sitting.

SCOPE Worker 
Relates Progress 

Editors note: Several UMass students spend their summers working 
as SCOPE Project volunteers in Williamston, N.C. Of those, Ken 
Hardy, the author of the following letter, is the Chairman of the 
Martin County SCOPE chapter. Ken is a Junior Socology major at 
the University, and his letter is an indication of their travails this 
Dear Friends of SCLC-SCOPE, Martin County, N.C, Chapter: 

We wish to thank all of you for your pioral and financial sup- 
port, and herewith give you a report of our activities to date in 
Martin County. 

At present we are holding classes in political education four 
nights a week, in Williamston and other nearby towns. Our main 
project at the moment, however, is an attempt to persuade the Coun- 
ty Board of Elections, by means of a petition, to open the registra- 
tion books. If the Board of Elections refuses to open the books, othef 
forms of pressure, as yet undetermined, will be used. In addition, 
we have integrated a restaurant in Hamilton, and plan to test a 
lunchroom in Uniontown tomorrow. A meeting for all farmers of 
Martin County and nearby counties is planned for next Saturday, 
August 7, at the Mount Shiloh Baptist Church in Williamston. At 
this officials from the Federal Government will discuss various 
aspects of farming, including government loans and A.S.C.S. elec- 
tions. The conference will be sponsored by SCLC and CORE. 

A principal problem which we encounter is that of fear, on the 
part of Negroes and whites alike. Another problem lies in the fact 
that we are white: members of the all Negro SCOPE chapter in 
Bertie County can talk to workers in the fields or in integrated 
neighborhoods unnoticed, while when we come within fifty yards of a 
tobacco barn, or go to a Negro home that is near a white home, Mr. 
Charlie often emerges and asks what kind of trouble we are stirring 
up among "his" Negroes. 

Of our original thirteen members, seven of us are still working 
in Martin County. Hugh Hawkins, Walter Richards, and Mike Bick 
have gone home, Dave Walsh is home for a visit and is expected 
back within the next few days, Joe Ruggiero is working in Plymouth 
with a SCOPE volunteer who was sent up from Atlanta a few days 
ago, Pete Buck is working on voter registration in Henderson, and 
Ross Connelly is in New Bern, where demonstrations are being held 
daily to protest the proposed ousting of the head of the Anti-Poverty 
Program there. 

Living here for five weeks has shown us that the problems of 
this county and especially of Williamston will not be solved in one 
summer. However, we hope we will help the people to set in motion 
the social forces necessary to effect the changes necessary to bring 
freedom and the elimination of racism to all men in Martin County. 

Thanking you again for your support, we are. 

Yours for freedom, 
Kenneth Hardy, Director 
Martin County SCOPE Chapter

THIS FALL the Redmen foot- 
ball team will open the 24,000 
seat Alumni Stadium against 
a powerhouse eleven from 
A.I.C. This contest should bring 
prospective fans from all over 
the Pioneer Valley to see whe- 
ther or not the Redmen can run 
up a three digit score with the 
fourth team. 

This game comes in the 
midst of the struggle to have 
the University considered a ma- 
jor college in the Lexicon of 
Football. In this dictionary a 
"major college" is defined as an 
institution which competes with 
at least five other major col- 
leges. Freshmen beware: you 
have been taught never to de- 
fine a term by using the term 
in the definition. Apparently 
the overseers of classification 
have never taken English 111. 
As of August 9 the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts was once 
again dropped to the ranks of

Two Alumni 
Attend IFYE 

Two Massachusetts alumni of 
the International Farm Youth 
Exchange program will attend 
the first conference for former 
participants, scheduled to be 
held from August 21 to 29 at 
Munsingen, Switzerland. 

Robert Hume, formerly of 
Greenfield, and Mrs. Jane Mar- 
ker t Moody, formerly of Am- 
herst, will both attend the 
IFYE's First World Alumni 

The two former delegates 
will be accompanied by Miss 
Mildred L. Howell, assistant 
state 4-H club leader from the 
University of Massachusetts. 

The IFYE is a two-way ex- 
change with rural people of 
other countries. The program is 
conducted by the National 4-H 
Club Foundation in behalf of 
the cooperative extension serv- 
ice of land-grant institutions 
and the U. S. Department of 

Since 1949, Miss Howell said, 
GO youths from foreign coun- 
tries have visited Massachusetts 
under the IFYE program, and 
26 Bay State youths have made 
six-month exchange visits to 21 

More than 300 IFYE alumni 
from 31 countries are expected 
at the Swiss conference this 
month. About 150 of the parti- 
cipants will be from the U. S. 
The conference theme, "Know 
Better to Understand Better," is 
an elaboration of IFYE's objec- 
tive — "learning another way of 
life by living it."

While the pole construction 
shown on the plan is especially 
suitable on sloping sites, it can 
be used equally well on level 
ground. The builder with a level 
lot may wish to erect his cabin 
on a reinforced concrete slab. 

Approximately 3000 board feet 
of lumber are required to con- 
struct this attractive unit. Us- 
ing the rough-sawn native lum- 
ber specified on the plan, the 
structure, minus interior finish 

and utilities, has .a materials 
cost of under $600 

Since pole framing does away 
with the usual closly spaced 
studding, location of window and 
door openings is quite flexible. 
The structure can easily be ex- 
tended to 30 feet in length, 
thereby allowing one end of the 
cabin to be partitioned into 
sleeping areas. Plan MC-5610

a compact, adaptable cabin de-

exact needs and financial abili-

Performances in "The Imagi- 
nary Invalid" have earned two 
young members of the Univer- 
sity repertory theatre company 
opportunities for professional 
work in Boston. 

Bill Oransky, who plays the 
lead in the UMass Summer The- 
atre's version of Moliere's com- 
edy, last week was offered and 
accepted a position with the 
Charles Playhouse in Boston for 
the coming season. 

And Lynn Martin, who plays 
opposite Oransky in "The Imag- 
inary Invalid." was offered an 
audition early this week with 
the same Boston theatre. 

A GRADUATE of Queens Col- 
lege, Oransky will begin work 
with the Playhouse late this 
month. He will be seen in pro- 
ductions prepared for the Chil- 
dren's Theatre there from late 
September through next May. 

Miss Martin was offered her 
audition with a view toward be- 
coming a member of the same 
Children's Theater company.

Two Mass. Bills 
Vital To Consumers 

Two measures are now being 
considered by the Massachu- 
setts General Court— the Retail 
Installment Sales Act and the 
Truth in Lending Act— are im- 
portant to Bay State families 
making use of consumer credit. 
Miss Marjorie M. Merchant of 
the University said today. 

Miss Merchant, an extension 
specialist in consumer market- 
ing education, explained: "Vital 
to both bills are full disclosure 
provisions whereby consumers 
may know how much — interest 
rates as well as dollars and 
cents — it will cost to secure 

"The Truth in Lending Act 
contains the provision that 
when credit is to be extended, 
the consumer or family will be 
told how much it will cost in 
dollars and cents. The finance 
charge would also be expressed 
as a 'simple annual interest 

THIS BILL can equally pro- 
tect consumers using revolving 
credit plans where additional 
merchandise is continuously be- 
ing charged. Under this bill, 
monthly statements would be 
required to set forth old and 
new balances, payments re- 
ceived and credit costs for the 
period covered, and its equiva- 
lent in a 'simple annual interest 

"The Retail Installment Sales 
Act also contains a provision so 
consumers will know the real 
cost of the credit they are us- 
ing. Under this bill, maximum 
rates would be set on the price 
of credit — 18 percent on 
amounts up to $500 and 14 per- 
cent on what is in excess. 

"On revolving credit, charge 
accounts for example, the rate 

would be maximums of I'a and 
1 percent per month on the un- 
paid balance which is approxi- 
mately 18 and 12 percent ex- 
pressed in annual rate terms. 

proposed in this bill. Shoppers 
who have made their purchases 
at a location other than that of 
the seller can cancel their pur- 
chase agreement by 5 p.m. the 
next day if certain delivery and 
other conditions have not been 

"The Retail Installment Sales 
Act could also help to correct 
abuses that often occur through 

"Presently, newly purchased 
merchandise can be added to 
'open end' agreements where a 
default on payment for the last 
item can result in all previous 
purchases being repossessed, 
whether or not they have been 
paid for in full. Such 'open 
end' agreements would be pro- 
hibited by the Retail Install- 
ment Sales Act. 

"Consumer credit has become 
a familiar part of the American 
scene. Consumer debt, including 
iiome mortgages as well as in- 
stallment and other types of 
household credit, has experi- 
enced rapid growth. 

nual Report of the President's 
Council of Economic Advisors. 
January, 1%5, consumer credit 
has grown at an average rate of 
about 8 percent a year during 
the past four years. 

"With such widespread use of 
credit, it is becoming increas- 
ingly imperative consumers 
have uniform measures of com- 
parison in order that they may 
secure and use credit wisely in 
relation to their family needs." 

Amherst College Names 
Development Director 

John L. Callahan. Jr.. has 
been appointed director of de- 
velopment at Amherst College, 
heading the College's continu- 
ing program of financial sup- 
port for educational growth. 

Mr. Callahan, associate direc- 
tor of development at Amherst 
since 1962. is former director of 
College Development at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago. His appoint- 
ment as director of develop- 
ment at Amherst represents a 
decision by Amherst's Board of 
Trustees to maintain a develop- 

ment staff on a continuing bas- 
is. The Amherst Capital Pro- 
gram, a three-year drive for 
$20 million in new funds ended 
June 30, with $21,129,000 re- 
ceived. This was the first phase 
of a long-term effort to acquire 
$36,000,000 in new resources by 
1971. The professional staff for 
the Capital Program was head- 
ed by Charles R. Longsworth, 
formerly assistant to the presi-

University Housing: A Dynamic Program 

Good Dormitory Conditions 
Conducive To Education

A view from an Orchard Hill dorm. 

Only a fraction of a day is 
spent in the class room. It is the 
activities of other hours which 
will make or break the goal of 
the University experiment — the 
hoped for response of con- 
sciousness and conscience in each 
subject which define the 'edu- 
cated' individual (educated for

youth are enriched, erased and

in the student's spare moment

ships and bric-a-brac of personal 
taste and distaste. 

A multitude of extra-curricu- 
lar events and activities provide 
one creative and educative out- 
let for many students. 

The University has provided 
another multitude of integrating 
activities and social taboos with- 
in housing quarters. Events, so- 
cial and competitive, under spon- 
sorship of the Women's Inter- 
dorm Council, such as the Wom- 
en's Inter-dorm Sing, activities 
under direction of the officers 
and counselors of each dormitory

floats and Winter Carnival snow 
sculptures — provide entertain-

Dormitory regulations, espe- 
cially for Univereity women, are 
yearly a topic of comment and 
controversy. A handbook pro- 
vided each student early in the 
year lists the commandments of 
residence hall living for under- 
graduates. These are regularly 
broken and offenders, if caught, 
are regularly punished. Rare the 
coed who never overstays her 
curfew, conceals a hot plate in 
her room, or illegally entertains 
a girl friend overnight at least 
once in her college career. Rare

joins a late night bull session in 
the dorm which includes at least 
one illegal necessity of collegiate 
male entertainment. 

A hierachy of student officials, 
under direction of the Offices of 
the Dean of Men and of Women, 
help coordinate and oversee the 
activities of students in their 
daily lives. 

Counselors in men's and wom-

New counselors are chosen 
through joint cooperation of pre- 
sent counselors and Univereity 
student personnel officials. 

Many dormitories also elect 
representatives from among non- 
counselor students to aid in or- 
ganizing and running dorm so- 
cial and cultural programs. 

In the case of serious offense 
against housing restrictions, the 
elected bodies of Men's and 
Women's Judiciaries take over 
judgment of a student's case 
from the house council and pass 
their recommendations along to 

the dean concerned. 

An integral part of every dor-

University Housing Will 
Accomodate More Students 

In the experiment called the 
University Experience, one often 
overlooked variable has been the 
potential dynamicism in the com- 
munity living manner of 8000 un- 

These four mobile, mercurial 
years are for many the first and 
last opportunity to interact with 
the full spectrum of American 
pluralism, in class, on the field, 
at meetings and dances. 

But not insignificant are the 
place and mode of day to day 
living in dormitory, fraternity, 
apartment or home. 

The physical facts of housing 
accommodations provide a bar- 
ometer to the probable intensity 
of interaction in this living ex- 

During the 1964-65 academic 
year, 13 women's and 15 men's 
dormitories housed over 2800 
women and 3100 men (not in- 
cluding 280 Stockbridge students 
in two dormitories). An addi- 
tional 500 men and 300 women 
lived in fraternity or sorority 

houses. There were thus about 
20 women and over 600 men liv- 
ing in off-campus apartments or 
commuting from home. 

To the almost 800 undergrad- 
uates provided for, may be added 
some 2200 Graduate students liv- 
ing almost entirely off-campus. 

In 30 University dormitories 
built to house 5890 students, 
statistics for October of 1964 
showed that 6226 students were 
accommodated. Crowded? Sure, 
but less so than in the preceding 
academic year. In 1963-64, 26 
dormitories set for normal oc- 
cupancy of 4502, were holding 
(based on figures for September 
of 1963) 5473 students— nearly 
1000 extra students. 

There is hardly an end in sight 
to the growth of this massive, 
sprawling complex. Future stu- 
dent housing, say officials, will 
be nurtured in the southwestern 
corner of the campus where the 
angular outlines of "Project 4" 
are already climbing skyward. 

"Project 4" includes four 4- 

story dormitories aimed at a 
completion date in August of 
1%5 and two 22-story dorms 
aimed at readiness in July of 
1966. The six halls will house 
another 1885 students. Accom- 
panying them will be a new din- 
ing hall for 850, to be opened in 
January of 1966. 

Three more of the towering 
high-rise dormitories will be 
ready to accommodate 1728 stu- 
dents in August of 1966; at about 
the same date, a dining hall for 
850 is expected to be ready for 

Also on the boards, says Hous- 
ing Officer John Welles, is a long 
low-rise residence hall and an- 
other high-rise one, to hold 1102 
students in August of 1967, and 
in the further future three more 
low-rise residences and another 
dining hall. 

In all, he states. University 
housing accommodations should 
provide for another 5276 students 
between now and September of 
1%8. Man, that's big business.

Study is a central theme in the life of all students. Mary Hitchinson, a member of the class of 65,

Greater Freedoms 
Offered Off-Campus 

The importance of off-cam- 
pus living is just starting to be 
realized in the campus housing 
shortage of recent years which 
has led to a more lenient Uni- 
versity attitude toward male 
undergraduates living in private 
residences. Female students are 
not allowed off-campus, unless 
living with parents or spouse. 
The present 900 commuting un- 
dergraduates and 2200 graduate 
students will increase considera- 
bly in number as the student 
body grows. 

Official University hands-off 
policy of allowing private enter- 
prise to provide for students 
seeking housing has been aunple 
encouragement for apartment 
complexes starting to dot the 
area around Amherst. An in- 
creasing number of homeowners 
in the area are renting rooms 
and apartments to UMass stu- 

Charlie Cook, Doug Morri.son, 
Lincoln Hirst and Eddie Bradley 
represent a common situation 
among this newly powerful com- 
muter faction. 

Renting a four-room apart- 
ment, one of three in an old 

building remodeled by its owner 
in South Deerfield, nine miles 
from campus, marks many as- 
pects of living different from 
dormitory students. 

"The most Lmportant differ- 
ence is the obvious,'" says Char- 
lie, a sophomore civil engineer- 
ing major. "VVc have a place to 
entertain dates on weekends. On 
campus, we'd generally only 
have the Student Union to go to 
or a show perhaps in town. 

"Oh, there's more responsibil- 
ity — but isn't ability to handle 
responsbility one of the aims of 
our education here?"

Berkshire Museum Holds 
Special Art Exhibitions 

The Berkshire Museum in

public this summer, and provides 
many attractions of interest. In 
addition to its many regular 
galleries, the Museum offers 3 
special exhibitions this month. 
Selections from the Lawrence

life was like in the early days 
of the Berkshires, there are also 
exhibits of far more than local

Europe Offers 
Good Wages 

Grand Duchy of Luxembolrg, 
Adventurous students now have 
an opportunity to work in Europe 
and earn as much as 3400 a

Wages and working conditions 
are the same as those of the

UMass Readies For 12,000: 
Largest Enrollment Ever 

ACE AERIALIST — SFC Loy Brydon, who took part in the 
only five-way, six-man baton pass on a jump from SO-thousand 
feet, is a member of the U.S. Parachute Team which will com- 
pete with the finest jumpers from 23 other countries at Orange, 
Mass., beginning Aug. 11. A veteran Army man and member of 
the U.S. Army Parachute Team, Brydon has more 750 jumps. 

Parachute Contest 
To Select U.S. Team 

Nearly 12,000 students are expected to regis- 
ter for classes at the University Sept. 9. 

In addition, the University of Massachusetts- 
Boston will open with an initial enrollment of 
1,000 students and faculty of 67. 

About 3,700 freshmen, the largest entering 
class ever, will raise the number of undergrad- 
uates at the Amherst campus to approximately 
9,000, an increase of 1,200 since last September. 

More than 2,200 graduate students are ex- 
pected to register for work toward advanced 
degrees at UMass. 

Three hundred freshmen will enter the two- 
year Stockbridge School of Agriculture, bring- 
ing total enrollment to 500. 

Special stuJents — those taking fewer than 
12 credits per semester — are excepted to num- 
ber 200. 

More than 130 new faculty members have 
been appointed and the UMass faculty now 
numbers 850. 

Three new academic buildings will be ready 
for September's student influx — additions to 
Morrill Science Center, the School of Engineer- 
ing and Food Science and Technology quarters. 

The three new structures have been built at 
a cost of more than $6-million — over half of 
that for the laboratory and classroom additions 

to Morrill Science Center. 

Four dormitories of the new Southwest Resi- 
dence area will also be ready for September oc- 
cupancy, the first phase of a residential college 
plan similiar to the program instituted last year 
at the Orchard Hill dorms. It will be under di- 
rection of Dr. Clarence Shute, head of the UMass 
philosophy department. 

The university's new 24,000-seat football 
stadium will be dedicated Oct. 16, when the 
Fighting Redmen meet the Rhode Island Rams 
in UMass' annual Homecoming game. 

Both the Southwest Residence Complex and 
Alumni Stadium are being built by the Univer- 
sity Building Authority on a self-liquidating 
basis, at no cost to Bay State taxpayers. 

The Southwest Complex, when completed will 
have housing and dining accommodations for 
5,300 students. Its 23 building include five 22- 
story dormitories and three dining conmrons. 

Construction will begin this fall on a $3-mil- 
lion administration building on the site of the 
west stands of the former football field. 

Work is expected to start during the winter 
or early spring on additions to Machmer and 
Bartlett classroom buildings and a central stor- 
age warehouse.

ORANGE— The best spot par- 
achutists in the United States 
are arriving at Orange this 
week to prepare for Saturday's 
10 a.m. opening of the 1965 na- 
tional parachuting champion- 

The week-long meet at the 
Orange Municipal Airport will 
select a five-member team and a 
four-member women's team to 
represent the U.S. next year in 
the world meet at Leipzig, East 

Norman Heaton, meet direc- 
tor and executive director of the 
Parachute Club of America 
(PCA), expects about 100 top- 
notch contestants to compete in 
what he calls the most compe- 
tent national field ever assem- 

He explained that the U.S. is 
divided into 11 conferences in 
which eliminations have already 
selected the best qualified jump- 

Every meet has three divis- 
ions for scoring purposes: 
Style, accuracy and over-all. 
The top five contestants in each 
division are eligible for the na- 
tional meet. Because there is a 
great deal of overlapping 
among winners, only about 135 
are actually qualified to attend. 
Among the 93,000 PCA mem- 
bers are a number of healthy 
women who take to the air. 
Heaton expects about a dozen 
will be at the nationals this 

The team will have the five 
top men and an alternate while 
the women's team will have 
four regulars and an alternate. 

During the first 2^/i days 
everyone will make six jumps, 
four for style and two for ac- 
curacy. Each style jump is 
made from 6,200 feet and the 
chutist has 25-30 seconds of free 
fall to complete certain pre- 
scribed acrobatic maneuvers. 
He is judged on rate of comple- 
tion and form. 

He must then make two ac- 
curacy jumps from 3,300 feet, 
attempting to land with in a 6- 
foot circle where the bull's eye 
is located— a six-inch disk. 

After all jumpers have com- 
pleted the first series of jumps, 
the top half will continue, and 
again be cut in half in a two- 
day elimination. 

The remaining 20 or so men 
will enter the third phase for 
an abbreviated final selection of 
the top jumpers. 

Spectators should enter 
through Swamp Rd. off East 
River St. to a special parking 
are and Heaton requests they 
stay clear of the runway and 
not wander around the competi- 
tion area for their own safety 
and the expediency of the com- 

Refreshments will be avail- 
able in the jump area and ad- 
mission will be $1 a person or 
$4 for the entire meet. 


The first fall publica- 
tion of the COLLEG- 
IAN will be Thursday, 
Sept. 9. Any articles,

Peter Pan Petition 
Opposed in Boston 

The state Department of Public 
Utilities has under advisement 
a petition by Peter Pan Bus 
Lines, Inc. for the establish- 
ment of an equipment point in 
Amherst, which was assailed by 
legal counsel, Atty. David F. 
Keefe of Northampton. 

Atty. Keefe, repiesenting 
Western Massachusetts Bus 
Lines, Inc., which has the au- 
thority to serve the Amherst 
area, said the application was 
something that never should

have been filed." Atty. Keete 
termed the petition a "joke pe- 
tition." The Northampton law- 
yer made his statements at the 
end of the third session of a 
continued public hearing that 
drew wide opposition as well as 
support from some transit cir- 

He was also critical, in his 
closing arguments, of "the 
length of the hearing." He said 
the time the case consumed 
"was a mockery of the commis- 
sion (D.P.U.)." "It is a terrible 
indictment of our (legal) pro- 
cess," he declared. 

Western Massachusetts Bus 
Lines, the major protestant 
against the petition, was grant- 
ed a certificate by the D.P.U. 
last September, according to 
public records, which authorized 
the company to operate passen- 
ger service in the town of Am- 

Atty. Keefe said the Peter 
Pan Bus Lines petition should 
be discussed by the D.P.U. on 
grounds it would bring "chaos" 
to the franchises of transit com- 
panies. He told John J. Kelly, 
chief D.P.U. transportation in- 
spector presiding at the hear- 
ing, that the applicant did not 
show where public interest 
would be served by granting the 

There was not a single Am- 
herst resident or official "no 
town manager or town select- 
man," said Atty. Keefe, "who ap- 
peared supporting the Peter 
Pan Bus Lines petition. There 
was no testimony whatever 
from Amherst, the area alleged 
to benefit by the equipment 
point," the Northampton attor- 
ney asserted. 

Support of the Peter Pan Bus 
Lines petition came last Thurs- 
day with testimony made by

The new Southwest Resi- 
dence Complex will open 
Sept. 9 for 1,200 students in 
the second phase of an exper- 
iment in living at UMass. 

William F. Field, dean of 
students, explained that the 
first phase of the experiment 
began last year in the Orchard 
Hill complex with resident 
faculty members. The object 
of having residents is to end 
the separation of student life 
as found in dorms and the 
business of the university as 
seen in the classroom. 

In addition to classes in the 
Orchard, last year's program 
had special lectures and other 
events usually scheduled cam- 

Southwest Complex: a New Concept 


These innovations will be 
continued in Southwest under 
direction of faculty resident 
Dr. Clarence Shute of the 
philosophy department. He 
will probably not pursue the 
same program found on the 
hill but will use it as a guide- 
line, making changes based 
on the Orchard experience. 

The new housing complex 
will provide beds and dining 
accommodations for 5,300 
students when completed in 
two years. Administrators be- 
lieve this to be the largest 
single living unit built in a 
single stroke for any univer- 
sity in the U.S. 

Inspection of four low-rise 

dorms is being made by uni- 
versity and state officials 
who are confident these first 
dorms will be completed on 
time without the problems ex- 
perienced last year with the 
seven-story Orchard dorms. 

Building a dorm is like pre- 
paring a meal — separate dish- 
es must be ready at the same 
time. And, Dr. Field said, 
last-minute preparations are 
going well, "better than I'd 
dreamed for." 

The drought is a boon to 
builders who have lost virtu- 
ally no days because of wea- 
ther. In fact they've exceeded 
a story per week on five 22- 
story rorms going up adjacent 
to the smaller dorms.

Landscaping, always a 
problem when construction is 
continuing next door, is near- 
ly to the grass-seed stage. 

The buildings are designed 
to complement the gentle 
slope of the land from Sunset 
Ave. toward Rte. 116. When 
completed, the 16 buildings 
will include five 22-story 
dorms housing 2,800, eight 

low-rise dorms for about 
2,400 and three dining com- 

Names have not been offi-

commons, nestled in the mid- 
dle of the complex, will be 
ready by second semester.

Women will occupy three

and may be adapted for use 
by either sex as policy and en- 
rollment demand. This is in 
keeping with the concept of 
a flexible complex that will 
not be tied to single residence 

Between 130 and 140 dou- 
ble rooms will be tripled to 
accommodate the large num- 
ber of students desiring resi-

campus will see more than 
600 double-rooms expanded

This necessary crowding will 
affect over 1800 students.

Construction continues on 
the 22-story dorms and the 
first will be topped-out in 
about a week as they rise at a 
rate of one story a week. Con-

from the immediate living

of studies disturbance. 

The 22-story dorms will, in 
effect, contain three dorms in 
each structure. The buildings 
are constructed in seven-story 
units with six living floors 
and one public unit to serve 
about 190 students, much like 
the main floor of a conven- 
tional dorm. 

The public floors are posi-

public floors.

Amherst College To Build 
New Athletics Facilities 

Amherst College this week 
took the first steps to develop 
a new complex of athletic 
fields, including a new football 
field and field house, immedi- 
ately south of its Alumni Gym- 
nasium and adjacent athletic 

The new development, not 
scheduled for use for at least 
two, and probably three years, 
will replace Pratt field as the 
site of home football and la- 
crosse games, track meets and 
other events. It is being con- 
structed in an effort to concen- 
trate all playing fields around 
the gymnasium and to replace 
facilities that have become in- 
adequate at Pratt field. Drain-

Other Work 

In addition to building con- 
struction, about $2,500,000 is be- 
ing spent for other work on the 
UMass campus — improvements 
to utilities, roads and parking 

Buildings still in various stages 
of design include a second addi- 
tion to Bartlett Hall, a graduate 
research center, fine arts build- 
ings, library addition and Stu- 
dent Union addition. 

University undergraduates this 
fall will be able to choose their 
courses of study from among 65 
major areas — including a new 
Four-College cooperative pro- 
gram in the classics. 

The Gradaute School offers the 
master's degree in nearly 50 
areas of study and the doctorate 
in 29. 

New graduate offerings include 
Master's programs in anthro- 
pology, computer science and la- 
bor studies. New programs lead- 
ing to the Ph.D. will be con- 
ducted in agricultural engineer- 
ing, mathematics and plant sci- 

Dr. John W. Ryan, former 
UMass secretary and former 
vice-president for academic af- 
fairs at Arizona State University, 
will head the Boston branch 
when it opens.

age at Pratt Field does not 
function properly while facili- 
ties for players and spectators 
at its field house have become 
sub-standard. At the same time 
the limited practice facilities at 
Pratt Field made it necessary 
for freshman football to hold 
is practice sessions on Hitch- 
cock Field, adjacent to the 
gymnasium. Coaches feel that it 
would be desirable to have all 
football practice facilities at one 

The new development will in- 
clude a football field with mov- 
able bleachers for intercollegi- 
ate competition, three practice 
fields, a track, a field house and 

parking areas. It will be located 
south of the existing playing 
fields (Hitchcock Field and Me- 
morial Field) and will be con- 
nected to those fields by new 
roads and walks, crossing the 
tracks of the Boston and Maine 
railroad which separates the 
two areas. Soil tests are now 
being conducted. Thereafter the 
College's landscape architects, 
Clarke and Rapuano, Inc., of 
New York will prepare detailed 
plans. Rough grading and land 
preparation will begin in the 
spring. After this work is com- 
pleted the ground will be al- 
lowed to settle for about a year 
before final work is undertaken.

protest that local carriers need-

survive in the transportation 

In his summation, Boston 
Atty. Frank Daniels said the 
Peter Pan Bus Lines application 
"was a protective one." He ar- 
gued that the petitioner has "a 
legal and leigitimate garage 
point in Amherst." That evi- 
dence is backed up by the ex- 
cise bills paid by Peter Pan 
Bus Lines, Atty. Daniels pointed 

What Peter Pan Bus Lines 

sought from the petition, Atty. 
Daniels said, "is the right to 
serve the public in Amherst 
without any deadhead charges," 
He said Amherst is the "only 
community in the common- 
wealth" which is penalized by 
head mileage. 

Opposition to the petition was 
also recorded in the closing min- 
utes of the hearing by Fitch- 
burg-Leominster Street Railway

Mr. Kelly he had appeared for

SPRINGFIELD— Nearly 1000 
civil rights protestors marched 
to Court Square yesterday af- 
ternoon to protest alleged police 
brutality and demand positive 
rights action from Springfield 
Mayor Charles Ryan. 

Chanting "Jim Crow must go. 
Segregation must go," "police 
brutality" must go, Mayor Ry- 
an must go," the whites and Ne- 
groes from at least as far as 
North Carolina marched three 
abreast from Winchester 
Square down State Street to 
the park adjacent to City HaH, 
the scene of a sit-in protest last 

The march stemmed from 
charges of police brutality at 
the Octagon Lounge July 17, 
denied pleas for a solution to 
defacto segregation, charges of 
brutality at the sit-in and a 

SPRINGFIELD— The forces 
of law and order outnumbered 
marchers almost five to one 
yesterday afternoon as Gov. 
Volpe called out the National 
Guard "to insure a peaceful 
civil rights demonstration." 

The bars and package stores 
were closed Saturday night at 8 
and remained closed until to- 
day. Other towns in the area 
went along with Springfield and 
suspended all liquor sales. 

Nearly 3,100 National Guards- 
men lined the parade route and 
cleared the streets with the help 
of 375 city police and 100 state 
police. Mayor Ryan did not 

want a Los Angeles to develop 
in Springfield. IT DID NOT. 

All marchers registered with 
CORE representatives and 
obeyed the orders of parade 
marshals wearing bright orange 
vests and linked together by 

Some guardsmen had un- 
sheated bayonets but the ma- 
jority stood placidly by the road 
watching the demonstration and 
ignoring occasional taunts from 
the marchers. 

The majority of the people 
seemed to ignore the jeeps pa- 
trolling the streets and were

Three months ago de facto 
segregation in the schools was 
the issue, but the courts decid- 
ed that de facto segregation 
was not present in Springfield. 
Still, civil rights groups call for

Mayor Ryan met Friday with 
Gov. Volpe in an all-day confer- 
ence to discuss plans for the 
demonstration. He also met 
with rights leaders to hear 
their demands. Some leaders 
claimed he violated their trust 
when he came away from the 
meeting with the spirit of vic- 
tory and superiority. 

MANY OF THE speakers at 
the rally yesterday afternoon 
called for the removal of Ryan 
and the Chief of Police, but 
through elections. There were 
none of the overtones of the 
Los Angeles insurrection. 

The march was well-organ- 
ized, with men from CORE 
SCLC, and other civil rights 
groups acting as parade mar- 
shals to keep the marchers 
three abreadst from the DeBer- 
ry Playground to the square, 
one mile away. 

The streets were lined with 
National Guardsmen but the 
civilian turnout was light, per- 
haps not more than 5,000. Only 
in down-town Springfield were 
the crowds heavy, and more 
have been seen on St. Patrick's 

THE WEATHER was threat- 
tening all afternoon which may 
have partially explained the 
light turnout. But the reports of 
police brutality have kept many 
from the downtown area, ac- 
cording to civil rights workers. 
The marchers reached the 
square around 4 p.m. and began 
the rally with singing by St. 
Anne's Freedom Singers from 
Boston. The enthusiastic crowd 
joined in and cries of "FREE- 
DOM" echoed down the ail-but 
empty nearby streets until 5:30. 
One song, addressed to Mayor 
Ryan, went: 

Can't stand in the middle, 
Can't stand there no more. 
Wliicli side are you on boy? 
Which side are you on? 

Springfield CORE Director 
Ben Swan led the rally and said, 
"You are beautiful out there," 
referring to the crowd that half- 
filled the square. Newsmen pro- 
liferated the parade route. 
Crews were sent from Boston, 
Hartford and the major TV net-

der of the day and the invoca-

Looking into the vast world 
of American athletics, one finds 
myriad cliches. "Well, sports 
fans, that's the bald game," is 
perhaps the most common, and 
also happens to fit the situation 
at hand. 

This is our last week of pub- 
lication for the Summer CoUe- 
gian, and thus my last column. 
Brushing aside an occasional 
crocodile tear, I must, in retro- 
spect, say that we flew rather 
strongly for a fledgling. Strong- 
ly enough that the University 
plans to accept our precedent 
and continue to support Sum^ 
mer Collegians in the future. 

TION, we approach the coming 
fall, at which time editors ara 

supposedly above writing the 
type of Joyous trash that I have 
disseminated this summer. 
Farewell to you, and to those 
lazy, hazy days, as dt were. 

Not to close on a sour note, I 
thought I'd add another tale of 
campus lore, similar to those of 
last week's column. First let me 
note that I enjoyed writing this 
drivel all sUinmer. It was fun, 
regardless of whether or not 
you appreciated it.

Oscar Bright of CORE, who 
was arrested last week on a 
possession of narcotics charge, 
said he was dragged off the 
steps of City Hall last week af- 
ter the four-day vigil and he 
"hopes to bring freedom back 
to those steps." He said, that 
among freedom fighters there 
are no outsiders. 

Juanita Griffin, also of CORE 
in Springfield, said, "The eyes 
of the world are on us today. 
We demonstrate for freedom 
and to bear witness to the prob- 
lem. We must show dignity 
and gain the respect of the po-

lem is the same as the one in 
Selma and Washington and that 
ministers should not flinch 
when outside agitators come to 
Springfield after they have 
helped send people south to 

The Rev. Charles E. Cobb of 
Springfield echoed Swan's 
words, and said, "Hear me, 
ministers of Springfield. Don't 
send me your dollars when you 
can go downtown. Don't make 
a mockery of the gospel." 

One speaker who received a 
bit less enthusiastic reception 
by the crowd was Dr. George 
Wiley, associate director of 
CORE. He said, "The good 
white citizens of Springfield are 
afraid of their black brothers 
because white people every- 
where have assaulted our dig- 
nity and deprived us of the 
basic elements of a good life." 
He predicted the civil rights 
struggle in the North will be 
longer, bloodier and more bitter 
than that in the South."

minnstration will be as unre- 
sponsive and unconcerned as 
those in Mississippi and Alaba-

classified as being in the ranks

Some of 13 white Instructors 
fired by predominantly Negro

day but a half dozen or so stayed 
in their campus apartments "to

The Interim teachere, mostly 
from Northern states, were dis- 
missed Thursday by Dr. Milton 
K. Curry, Jr., a Negro and the 
college president, for what he 
caUed "stirring up the students." 

Recruited by the Southern

of summer instruction, a group 
of Instructors came to Baptist-

this summer to teach remedial 
English and mathematics to high 
school graduates who were hope- 
ful of entering college this fall. 

The 10-week period covered by 
the contracts is to end today.

Reaction To Spfld. March 
Is In The Main Receptive 

by Peter HendricTcaon 

SPRINGFIELD— Reaction to 
the march was varied but most 
of the people in the area seemed 
to be receptive to the march 
though they may not have 
agreed with the objectives of 
the march. 

A Negro Shriner who is a 
business man and home owner 
said, "I feel we are marching 
for a worthwhile purpose that 
will bring significance to the 
movement. We want to be rec- 
ognized as citizens, not as Ne- 

Warns of 

Empty pesticide containers 
should never be left around a 
home or a farm, a Univereity 
scientist warned today. 

Dr. Ellsworth H. Wheeler, pro- 
fessor of entomology at UMass, 
explained that the great majority 
of "empty" containers all con- 
tain traces of concentrated 
pesticides, poisonous, or highly 
volatile chemicals. 

"It's too easy for someone to 
put food, feed, or drink into that 
'clean* pail or bottle that's 
handy," Dr. Wheeler said. 

Pesticide users may be legally 
liable for injuries or illness 
caused by 'empty' containers. Dr. 
Wheeler added. 

A 16 year old school girl 
said, "There was police brutal- 
ity at City Hall. I got kicked 
around after the sit-In. You 
know why I'm here, baby." 

One of the marshals who was 
a CORE worker said, "I'm 
marching for my rights and 
better conditions in the city. 
Police brutality has been here 
for five years. You might as 
well be in jail as live as a Ne- 
gro in the city." 

Robert Scott, a spectator at 
the Octagon Lounge incident, 
said, "I want my sister to be 
able to go out with the people 
she wants. We young men are 
sick and tired of being beaten 
on the head." After his explana- 
tion he led a chant of Jim Crow 
must go with the vigorous sup- 
port from other marchers. 

Mrs. Margaret Holt, a white 
house wife, said, "I know the 
leaders of CORE and am cer- 
tain that they are men df hon- 
or and integrity. I favor non- 
violent demonstrations that will 
bring awareness to the people 
of the city and of the nation." 

Father Harmon of Roxbury, a 
clergyman who has been active 
in civil rights work, said, "The 
issue Is de facto segregation 
and police brutality. We must 
show to Springfield and the sur- 
rounding communities our con- 
cern for these problems through 
this march." 

A tech high school student 
said, "Police Brutality? They 
were just doing their job. If 
someone attacked me I'd beat 
on them, too." 

A young Springfield house- 
wife who was watching along 
the parade route, commented, 
They may antagonize a lot of 
people. They should wait for 
the report from the Police Com- 
mission before they cry police 
brutality. The issues have be- 
come confused in my mind." 

A man at the scene of the 
railly was not happy with the 
demonstration. "They're not 
proving anything. There is no 
difference in the treatment the 
police give the white and the 
black citizen of the city." 

Another man at the rally said; 
"There is no real justification 
for the march. They just want 
something to do on a cloudy 
Sunday afternoon." 

The curious and the disinter- 
ested will no doubt be affected 
by yesterday's march. Whether 
any action satisfactory to civil 
rights workers on the de facto 
issue or the police brutality 
charges is made still anyone's 
guess. It still stands, though, 
that yesterday's demonstration 
was nonviolent and that it will 
draw attention to this northern

Jazz Workshop To Present 
Chuck Speas Friday Night 

Florist Shop Entered 
By Student of Area 

Drummer Chuck Speas, who 
brings his American Jazz Septet 
to The University on Friday, 
August 27, is a young man with 
many missions, not the least of 
whch is to improve the public 
image of jazz. To this end he has 
prepared a much needed history 
of jazz program, "The Evolu- 
tion of Jazz," and has gone to 
great length to re-create the au- 
thentic sounds of jazz develop- 
ment and to provide his audi- 
ences with the essential histori- 
cal background. Jazz is Ameri- 
ca's major contribution to the 
musical arts; Speas wants 
Americans to appreciate this 
great musical heritage, to under- 
stand it, and be proud of it. 

Speas new and informative ap- 
proach to jazz has met with the 
enthusiastic endorsement of such 
notable musicians as Raymond 
Paige, Conductor of the Radio 
City Music Hall Orchestra, and 
Paul Lavalle, Director of the 
Band of America, both of whom 
are familiar with this young 
drunmier's versatility and espe- 
cial talent for jazz. In 1955, 
when only nineteen, Speas was 
invited by Mr. Paige to assume 
the difficult position of percus- 


Collegian Annwd 

Sefit 9, 1965 

sionist with the Radio City Mu- 
sic Hall Orchestra, a position 
requiring equal dexterity in all 
phases of jazz, popular, and sym- 
phonic music. Last year, as fea- 
tured soloist and percussionist 
with Paul Lavalle at the New 
York World's Fair, Speas thrilled 
thousands with his jazz drum so- 


well known dance band leader, 
says : "Chuck Speas is one of the 
most versatile musicians I have 
ever had the pleasure of know- 
ing. It is obvious that he has 
made an extensive study of var- 
ious musical styles." Speas ac- 
quired this versatility, especially 
in the field of jazz, through his 
association with such notable 
musicians as Benny Goodman, 
Phil Napoleon, Wild Bill David- 
son, Johnny Eaton, and Sal Sal- 
vador. He has also worked with 
Les Elgart, Ray McKinley, and 
Ralph Flana-?an, and presently 
holds the position of Percussion 
Instructor at Teacher's College 
— Columbia University. His tele- 
vision appearances include the 
GOT A SECRET, and the TO- 
DAY show. He has recorded 
with the New York PhUhar- 
monic and the First Percussion 
Sextet, as well as making his 
own album, THE NEW SOUND 

Chuck Speas was bom in Ash- 
land, Ohio in 1935. Following his 
high school education he spent 
one year at Northwestern Uni- 
versity, then transferred to the 
Juilliard School of Music in New 
York City, graduating in 1958 
with a Bachelor of Science de- 
gree. He is married to a former 
Rockettc dancer, and they have 
one child. 

IN ADDITION to his varied 
musical activities, Mr. Speas 
holds a responsible position in 
his church affiliation, and is 
keenly interested in politics. He 
hopes eventually to pursue pub- 
lic office, and recently ran for 
office in the New York Qty mu- 
sicians' union, which is the larg- 
est union local in the world. Al- 
though defeated in this initial 
race, Speas nevertheless received 
over 40% of the votes cast. 

A dedicated musician, possess- 
ing wide interests and a deep 
sense of values, Speas demon- 
strates these qualities in his con- 
ception of 'The Evolutton of 
Jazz", a program unique in its 
combination of educational con- 
tent with exciting musical enter- 
tainment. Speas' "Evolution of 
Jazz" has already met with tre- 
mendous success at Washington 
State University, The State Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin, the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, and the 
Bynden Wood Music Festival. 

A college student was appre- 
hended at gun point in a florist 
shop Friday night, police said, 
and charged with breaking and 
entering in the daytime with in- 
tent to conunit a felony, and lar- 

Patrolman Eugene Wisnouskas 
said he was making his regular 
checks at about 7:45 p.m. when 
he discovered a broken window 
and a door ajar at Dwyer Florist 
Shop at 202 Main St. 

Wisnoukas said he entered the 
store and spotted the student, 
Peter V. Snyder, 24, of 7366 
Beechwood Dr., Mentor, Ohio, 
hiding behind a wall. The officer 
said he drew his gun and ar- 
rested him. 

He said Snyder would not tell 
him if there was any one else 
in the building, so he called to 
a passing pedestrian who got 
help. Patrolmen William Arnold 
and Daniel Labato came and 
searched the building and found 
no one else there. 

The owner of the shop, Neal 
Soutra of 164 Park St., East- 
hampton, was called to the scene. 
He made a check and said some 
money was missing. Wisnouskas 
said Snyder then adn:utted the 
theft in the amount of $45.80. 

Snyder listed his present resi- 
dence as 129 Colege St., Hadley, 
and said he was taking courses 
at the four colleges, UMass, 
Smith, Amherst and Mt. Holyoke 
in their co(^>eratlve program.

Two European Programs 
To Highlight Summer 1966 

You say you're getting tired 
of UMass summer school and 
the town of Amherst. Next 
summer's program offers two 
European study courses; one at 
Johns Hopkins University in Bo- 
logna Italy, and the other at St. 
Hilda's College, Oxford. 

The first program, at the 
Johns Hopkins Bologna facili- 
ties, will be under the director- 

ship of Professor Howard Quint, 
chairman of the UMass history 
department. Beginning towards 
the end of June, the course will 
last for eight weeks, and finish 
up in the middle of August. 

Fields of study are tentatively 
to include Renaissance History, 
Italian Art, Italian language, 
English Literature related to 
nineteenth century Italian Ro- 

mantic poets. International Re- 
lations and others. Members of 
of the University staff and vis- 
iting lecturers will compose the 

Johns Hopkins center in Bo- 
logna has been in operation for 
ten yeais and is particularly 
strong in training young gradu-

After two weeks of intensive 
training, 50 accountants have 
completed a 100-hour course 
presented by the Americaii In- 
stitute of Certified Public Ac- 
countants at the University's 
School of Business Administra- 

Sponsored by the profession- 
al development division of the 
institute, the 1965 staff training 
program was an intensive 
course of practical instruction 
for the public accounting staff 

Members of accounting firms 
and business organizations from 
15 states participated in the 10 
days of lectures, case discus- 
sions, workshops and guided 

Participants were trr.ined to 
the point where they can effic- 
iently and with min'mum su- 
pervision handle th^ various 

kinds of work assigned during 
the early years of their work- 
ing careers. 

With the emphasis on learn- 
ing by doing, participants re- 
ceived instruction and carefully 
supervised training in practical 
areas of accounting, auditing. 
taxation and data processing. 

Other areas covered by the 
institute were effective speak- 
ing, development of inter-per- 
sonal relationships and high 
ethical standards. 

Discussion leaders were An- 
tiiony T. Krzystofik, CPA, an 
associate professor of account- 
ing in the UMass School of Bus- 
iness Adminnistration, and Wil-

To Reign 

Few American college stu- 
dents can cut classes at will. 
take any courses they want — 
(or none at all)— not get grad- 
ed and still graduate. 

But this autumn three other- 
wise traditional colleges will let 
25 hand picked freshmen pursue 
their undergraduate educations 
in just that fashion. 

The colleges aim to see if 
such academic freedom sparks 
creative ability. Some educators 
think four years in a liberal 
arts college pursuing a con- 
trolled curriculum dampens cre- 

Tiie students— at Allegheny. 
Lake Forest and Colorado Col- 
leges—will sit in an any class 
they wish, take any course any- 
time, and not be graded on 
written papers. 

There comes an ultimate 
reckoning, however. Each stu- 
dent must meet once a week 
with a faculty preceptor and 
once a year be- examined by an 
outside board. And at some 
point in all this, each must pass 
both written and comprehensive 
tests on some subject of his

State Student Councils 
Attending UM Workshop 


The First Baptist Church 
Music Dept. is scheduled to 
have an auction and food sale 
Saturday, September 11th, 
Town Commons at 9:30 a.m. 
Items to be auctioned off will 
include books, old Bibles, book 
shelves, chairs, tables, dishes, 

The second annual leadership 
training workshop sponsored by 
the Massachusetts Association 
of Student Councils is under 
way at the University of Massa- 

The six-day workshop finds 
representatives of student coun- 
cils from all over the state join- 
ing in a wide variety of activi- 
ties designed to promote better 
understanding of how local 
councils can function more ef- 
fectively and to give delegates 
the opportunity to work on 
problems and ideas with stu- 
dents of other schools. 

The theme of this year's 
workshop is "Student council: 
workshop for leadership in to- 
day's world," and the director, 
William Ball, principal of Charl- 
ton high school, expressed con- 
fidence that the emphasis in the 

workshop on thorough and ac- 
tive involvement of delegates in 
problems and issues related to 
their specific situations and 
times will generate interest and 
satisfaction for participants. 

Ernest Baun of Rice Univer- 
sity is consultant for the work- 
shop and Robert O'Donell of 
Canton and Norman Gallagher 
of Lunenburg are assistant di- 
rectors for instruction and ac- 

Participants in the workshop 
have a full schedule' each day. 
They start the day off by 8:30 
with devotions and a general as- 

sembly in the auditorium. Each 
delegate is a member of a coun- 
cil and of a workshop commit- 
tee that meets daily in combin- 
ation with special general as- 
semblies. Topics and problems 
being discussed include: aims 
and objectives of student coun- 
cil, council organization, leader- 
ship training, problem solving 
techniques and parliamentary 

The workshop will close at 2 
Friday with distribution of cer- 
tificates, special awards, the 
formation of a friendship circle 
and benediction.

9th-Grade Start for 
Some Universities 

Moro and more American uni- 
versities, besides teaching stu- 
dents already there, are im- 
proving the teachability of those 
yet to come. 

Many high schoolers clearly 
of college caliber just can't pass 
the necessary university en- 
trance exams. Either from cul- 
tural or academic starvation 
they lerhaps haven't learned to 
use a library or can't meet lan- 
guage requirements. 

Once upon a time, money 
barred many students from 
higher educations. So the uni- 
versities themselves started giv- 
ing scholarships. Now academic 
gap is just as serious an obsta- 
cle. So the universities are try- 
ing to bridge that, too. 

Oregon University picks up 
many high school graduates, 
boards them on campus, and 
plies them with special instruc- 
tion until they are ready to take 
on regular credit courses.

Registrar of Motor Vehicles 
Richard E. McLaughlin issued 
a reminder today to the more 
than 2.3 million Massachusetts 
motor vehicle owners that the 
fall semi-annual inspection will 
begin as of Wednesday, Septem- 
ber 1. 

Motorists will have until mid- 
night, October 15, to secure a 
green inspection sticker from 
one of the 3,160 gasoline sta- 
tions and garages which have 
been licensed by the state to 
perform this year's inspection. 

As in the past few inspec- 
tions, those vehicles not in prop- 
er mechanical order will receive 
the red rejection sticker. Any 
vehicle receiving one of these 
stickers must be repaired with 
all reasonable speed. 

The equipment to be Inspect- 
ed includes: brakes, stop lights, 
lights, horn, exhaust system, 
steering gear, windshield, wind- 
shield cleaner, number plates, 
rear windows, tires, fenders, 
bumpers, external sheet metal, 
reflectors, splash guards and

says 66 of the 71 men in the 
football program last spring have 
attained passing grades and will 
be back in school this fall.

day, August 27. The Redmen will 
be playing their 83rd intercolle- 
giate season that will get under- 
way on September 18 at Maine. 

Head Coach Vic Fusia, who has 
compiled a four-year record of 
27-9-1, will welcome 14 letter- 
men among the 62 players in- 
vited to report for the drills. The 
Redmen lost 18 lettermen from 
the 1964 team that captured the 
Yankee Conference title for the 
second straight year. 

Heading the returning veterans 
will be tri-captains Bernie Dallas 
(Philadelphia, Pa.), Bob Meers 
(Hudson) and Bob Ellis (Bever- 
ly). Meers and Ellis, All Confer- 
ence selections, have been stand- 
outs for two years at end and 
halfback respectively. Dallas had 
a great sophomore season at cen- 
ter and linebacker and then was 
sidelined most of last fall with a 
knee injury. 

For the first time in his tenure 
Coach Fusia plans to use offen- 
sive and defensive units as much 
as possible. However, several of 
the more experienced players 
will probably go both ways as 
UMass has a large contingent of 
inexperienced sophs. 

Much attention undoubtedly 
will be given to the e^d squad 
which features one of the East's 
top combinations in Meers and 
all-every thing Milt Morin (Leo- 
minster). The 6'4", 245 lb. Morin 
is already being touted as one of 
the top professional prospects in 
the country. 

For the first time in three 
years a new quarterbacking 
squad will have to be developed. 
Three years of Jerry Whelchel 
and John Schroeder have ended. 
Now, the coaching staff will try 
to build a new unit led by prom- 
ising soph Greg Landry (Nashua, 
N.H.) and senior Dick Cain (Hol- 

Amherst Football Team 
Starts Drills Tuesday 

Three major elements — two 
assistant coaches and a machine 
— are being added to the Amherst 
CoUege football staff this fall. 

Joining the staff are J. Tracy 
Mehr, line and offensive coach; 
William E. Thurston, end coach; 
and CDC 3600 computer at the 
University which will be used to 
compile scouting reports on op- 

posing teams. The machine will 
not do anything that hasn't been 
done before, but it will do it fast- 
ter and — Coach Jim Ostendarp 
hopes — at least as efficiently and 

Ostendarp and his assistants, 
preparing for the return of the 
squad August 31, still have some

The University of Massachusetts Alumni Stadium, new home of the Yankee Conference Champ- 
ions, near completion as worlunen put finishing touches on the 24,000 seat facility. A view from the 
East Stands shows the 140 foot press box nearing completion, while workmen fasten cypress seats 
in the stands below. The Redmen will dedicate the stadium on October 16 against the University 
of Rhode Island, but wUl open the home schedule against American International College on Sep- 
tomber 25th. 

Redmen To Play Games 
In New Alumni Stadium 

It's a building year all around, 
at least as far as the University 
and head football coach Vic Fu- 
sia are concerned. 

When the' Redmen open their 
home football schedule against 
A.I.C. Sept. 25, they'll be play- 
ing for the first time in their 
smacking new $1,400,000 Alumni 
Stadium. A guided tour of the 
huge, white concrete structure, 
now very close to completion, 
revealed that not one of the 
24,000 seats is a bad one. 

"It gives you quite a lift, play- 
ers and everybody associated 
with the University football fam- 
ily," smiled Fusia, proud as a 
new daddy. "I only hope there 
are a lot of UMass touchdowns 
there. I think maybe we used 
them all up in the other field. ' 
That brought up the other 
building at the state school. 
"You might say everything is 
starting from the ground up this 
year," continued Vic, who has 
guided the Redmen to a 27-9-1 
mark in four seasons. He was 
referring not only to the stadi- 
um but also his own job of build- 
ing a football team around 14 
lettermen returning from the 
1964 Yankee conference champs. 
Fusia admitted he has a fair- 
ly solid foundation on which to 
start, but his biggest problem 
probably is finding a quarter- 

back to replace Jerry Whelchel, 
Redman cornerstone for the 
past three seasons. 

"Without Whelchel we'll have 
to do quite a few things differ- 
ently," he said. "But personally, 
Im looking forward to this year. 
We've had veteran teams for the 
past three years and there's no 
sense changing a winner. This 
year should be fun experiment- 
ing. We'll have a different look 

"We had a good, solid, hard- 
nose running game by the end 
of spi'ing practice and I hope to 
take up where we left off. How 
far we go on the passing game 
depends on the development of 
cur quarterbacks." 

Greg Landry, a 6-4, 195-pound 
sophomore from Nashua, N. H., 
High, appears to have the inside 
track now over seniors Dick 
"Candy" Cain (Holbrook and 
Steve Trbovich (Midland, Pa.) 

"They're all good ball handlers," 
said Fusia, "but Landry looks 
like the best passer so far." 

Tri-captains Bernie Dallas 
(Philadelphia), Bob Meers (Hud- 
son) and Bob Ellis (Beverly) 
are the biggest blocks in Vic's 
foundation. Ellis is a 6-2, 205- 
puund two-way halfback in Fu- 
sia 's two-platoon plans. "He's a 
strong runner and should have 
a fine year." Meers (6-3, 215) 
has been a standout at end along 
with Leominster's 6-4, 245- 
pound Milt Morin for two sea- 
sons. The return of Dallas, side- 
lined by a knee injury last year, 
"should improve our lineback- 
ing considerably." 

And just to complete the 
building bit, Fusia is in the midst 
of constructing his own home in 
the middle of Amherst, just 
three or four minutes from his
